Blackberry jam is about the only jam I like to be honest. My family love jam though so this recipe is for them….mostly!
We’ve also been picking blackberries as its an easy, fun thing to do with the kids. It is important to me to teach my children the origins of food so we often go foraging or look at the animals at the local farm butcher and we grow our own (badly!). If you’ve not heard about Chia seeds, you must have been living under a rock…or in Europe! They’ve been less popular here due to Novel food issues but they were approved in 2009. Phew.
Even the dog likes a little foraging action!
Blackberries x 200gm (or other berries, frozen but thawed, are okay too)
Chia seeds x 4tbspn
Cane sugar/honey x 65gm
Water x 45ml
Serve and eat. This is great on wheat free pancakes.
