Afternoon tea, bread, Breakfast, Dessert, Snack
small am jar/ tub with lid
fresh or frozen blueberries
about 2 cups
Place the blueberries in a medium saucepan.
Add the maple syrup and bring to a stew on a medium-high heat.
Turn heat down to medium and simmer the blueberries for about 5-8 minutes.
While stewing tap the blueberries with a wooden spoon or similar to help them release the juices.
Add the chia seeds and mix well.
Simmer for another 2 minutes, stir frequently as it thickens.
Carefully taste your jam as it will be quite hot.
If you'd like it sweeter then add a little extra syrup.
Leave to cool for at least 20 minutes before scraping into your clean jar or tub.
Or enjoy hot. For example with some vegan ice cream.
The jam will thicken more as it cools.
When cool, add a lid and store in the fridge.
