This raspberry jam is easy to prepare (it takes less than 5 minutes!), and is GOOD for you! It doesn't contain any nasty preservatives, gelatin, or refined sugar which most conventional jams contain. The jelly-like power of chia seeds when they come into contact with moisture makes them an excellent substitution for gelatin which is the main ingredient used in jams and jelly's to make it thicken up. You may use this spread on anything! It can even be used as a sweet dip for fruit or vegetables!
- 1 cup fresh organic raspberries (or frozen)
- 2 soaked medjool dates, pitted (or you may use 3 soaked prunes)
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
Put all ingredients into a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth. Put into a small jar and let settle in the fridge for 2-3 hours - Enjoy!
