- 1/4 cup water
- 2 teaspoons
chia seeds(Note 2)
- optional sweetener, to taste (Note 3)
- Cook Fruit: Add blueberries and water to saucepan (Note 4). Bring to boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring frequently and using utensil to burst most blueberries. Stir in chia seeds. Continue boiling while stirring nearly constantly until mixture looks thick and jam-like, about 2 minutes. Turn off heat.

Can you can this in jars? If so, how long should I water bath it?
Can this be canned?
Can you use hemp seeds in place of chia seeds ???
You can add some hemp seeds, but I wouldn’t replace the chia seeds with them.
Can this jam be stored on the cupboard or does it need to be refrigerated?
This jam needs to be refrigerated.
I just made this and I love it and it is so easy! I used frozen blueberries and it worked just fine. I didn’t even have to adjust the cooking time too much. I can’t wait to try it with other fruit!
