  • 2 cups chopped strawberries
  • 2-3 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds


  • Place the strawberries in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the strawberries have started to break down and release their juices.
  • Mash the strawberries with the back of a fork or a potato masher. (You can decide how smooth/lumpy you’d like it to be – I like mine with some lumps of strawberries still in there).
  • Stir in the maple syrup, cook for another minute or so, and then remove from heat.
  • Mix in the chia seeds and let sit for 5-10 minutes. The jam will thicken up. Store in the fridge for up to 4-5 days (but trust me, you’ll find yourself wanting to use it on everything!).
