Blueberry Jam (and it is sugar free)

Wholly blue berries batman!
I totally don't talk that way, but man this jam is good!

So here is the deal, it has no sugar added to it...but it does have a sweetener so don't freak out. It has one of my fav ingredients....CHIA SEEDS.  Yes, it is ch-ch chia. And in case you have not been anywhere and didn't know, berries are everywhere.

Let me just say this to you.  MAKE THIS JAM!!!!!  Don't think about it, don't wonder if you should...MAKE THE JAM!!!! you don't even have to can it.

Here is what you do:
2 cups blueberries
1/4 cup honey (I did half honey, half agave)
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup + 2 teaspoons chia seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla

This is how it looks RIGHT after it is all blended
So you blend it all up, let it sit there for 15 minutes then pour into a jar and pop in the fridge.  Eat it within a week or freeze up to a year. I divided mine into 3 small canning jars and filled each about 3/4 of the way full.  One into the fridge and 2 into the freezer.  Let me just tell you SOOOOO  GOOODDD!!!!

When your 2 year old is asking for jam a couple times a day and when he gets it even eats the crust from his know it is good!!!! Plus with no refined sugar you are totally good to go.

So like I said..... MAKE THIS JAM!!!!   You will probably send me flowers because this stuff will be loved by all ;-)
