Balsamic Strawberry Chia Jam
This balsamic strawberry chia jam is the perfect sweet spread, naturally sweetened and simple to make! Vegan, paleo and whole30 friendly, this strawberry chia jam is the perfect topping for pancakes, oatmeal or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
In a medium pan, add the 2 bags of frozen organic strawberries, chia seeds, balsamic vinegar, 1 packet stevia (or 2 tbs. maple syrup or one date, see post for details) and pinch of salt.
Cover with a lid and heat over medium heat until strawberries defrost and start to bubble, stirring after 5 minutes.
Turn heat down to low and continue to simmer, covered.
Turn off heat and allow to cool slightly. Blend with an immersion blender or add to your blender (be careful the mixture will be hot). Blend until smooth. If you want there to be some chunks, you can remove a few of the berries before blending and smash them with the back of your fork
Taste for sweetness and add 1 more packet of stevia or 1-2 more tablespoons of maple syrup.
Pour in a glass jar and let cool to room temperature before placing in the fridge, covered.
