Simple Rhubarb Strawberry Jam

Yields1 ServingPrep Time15 minsCook Time20 minsTotal Time35 mins

 3 cups rhubarb, chopped
 3 cups strawberries, sliced
 ¼ cup maple syrup, or other liquid sweetener
 ¼ cup chia seeds
 1 tsp lemon juice
 ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
1

Place the rhubarb, strawberries, and maple syrup in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir frequently once it starts to simmer. Cook for 5-10 minutes until the fruit is softened.

2

Add the chia seeds to the mixture, and continue cooking over low heat until thickened to your desire. It does continue to thicken once removed from heat. I like to cook for no more than 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

3

Add the lemon juice and vanilla.

Place in a jar or glass container. Store in fridge once cooled. Will keep up to two weeks in refrigerator.
