Put the frozen fruit in a pan over a medium heat and watch as your fruit starts to break down. This should happen fairly quickly, but continue to heat until the fruit is really heated through and bubbling away nicely.
At this point you could break the fruit pieces down a bit further with the back of a spoon but this jam will be beautifully chunky with fruit.
Now add the chia seeds and lemon juice and stir till they are fully combined. If you are going to add any sweetener this is the time to do it, so taste and add if necessary but be careful as it will be very hot!
Next you need to remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool. You will notice the jam starts to thicken really quickly as the chia seeds work their magic.
Give it another stir and then that’s it you have some fantastic ready to use jam.
You can store this in a sealed container in the fridge for about a week but it has loads of uses like a fruity addition to overnight oats or served with ice cream for a perfect no added sugar topping.
