Kick start your January with this easy blueberry and chia seed jam. The natural sharpness of the blueberries, along with a little honey, lemon and vanilla, give a wonderful depth of flavour and the chia seeds swell up, giving a perfect consistency. Try dolloping the jam onto toast or a steaming bowl of porridge in the morning.
Leave a 350g (12oz) pack of frozen blueberries out for 5 minutes to start thawing and then add them to a blender, along with 30g (1¼oz) of chia seeds.
Blend for 10 seconds, until the mixture reaches a slushy consistency.
Add 2 tsp of honey, the juice and zest of 1 lemon and 2tsp of vanilla paste.
Mix well with a spatula and spoon into a jar. Keep it in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
A very healthy little spread indeed. Try it on porridge or a rice cake.
