Easy Cherry Chia Seed Jam Recipe


  • 2 cups of fresh cherries, pitted (frozen work too)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (more or less to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds


  1. Place the prepared fruit, lemon juice and maple syrup is a small sauce pan over medium high heat. Simmer for 15 minutes until it bubbles and breaks down; use a potato masher or fork to mash the fruit to your desired consistency.
  2. Remove from the heat and stir in the chia seeds until all well combined.
  3. Let sit at least 15 minutes to allow the chia seeds to gelatinize.
  4. This jam is best stored for a few hours in the fridge.
  5. It will keep in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator up to one week.
  6. *You may need to add a tablespoon or two of water but I normally don’t; the fruit will release a lot of it’s own juice. If you like a really smooth jam you can puree the mixture in a blender or just use the potato masher.
