Berry Honey Jam

This has been my go-to jam recipe for years!
It is so simple and only requires 3 ingredients and about 20 minutes. You can use any type of berry. Blackberry, raspberry, strawberry and blueberry tend to be the most widely available, but I highly recommend checking out your local farmer's market for more fun and exciting berries, like boysenberries or huckleberries, when spring starts to kick in! This jam is delicious as is, but it can be spiced up with cinnamon or vanilla if you are feeling it.

This jam can be used for so many things, I make it at least once a week to have a constant supply on hand. I use it in cakes, as fillings or swirled into batter or buttercream. It can be used on pastries like thumbprint cookies, or on toast and waffles. My toddler regularly eats it in her PB&J's which is a much healthier alternative to store bough jams.

Magical & Healing Properties

Berries are high in antioxidants and vitamin C, chia seeds are rich in omega-3, fatty acids and fiber, and honey is an antibacterial.

Berries are used for love and protection. Raspberries specifically are used to aid distress in the sacral chakra. Strawberries are used for luck, and blackberries for healing!

The Steps

1 Basket Berries of your choice
1-2 tbsp honey (or sub maple syrup)
2 tbsp chia seeds


First, add your berries to a small pot. If you are using a tougher berry, like strawberries, I will sometimes pulse it in the blender once or twice to help break them up before adding to the pot.

Next, add the honey and chia seeds and cook on low heat. As the berries soften with the heat, mash them with a fork until softened. 

Continue to cook on low for about 15 minutes, until the berries have thickened and reach a jammy consistency. The jam will thicken further once it is cooled and the chia seeds soak up remaining liquid. 

Let cool, and store in a jar with a sealed lid in the refrigerator. It should last about a week!
