Strawberry Freezer Jam--No Sugar NO Pectin (No-Cook Method)

  •  1 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen and thawed)
  • 1 tablespoon water 
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • liquid sweetener to taste - honey/100% maple syrup (I used the syrup.


  1. Place berries in food processor or blender and mash until desired constancy.
  2. Combine water, chia seeds, and sweetener in a separate bowl. Mix well.
  3. Add mixture to mashed berries in the food processor or blender. Blend to combine. I just pulsed it a bit in the food processor so the berries did not get over mashed. If you over process/blend your end result will be more like jelly than jam.
  4. Pour into clean jars. I like the glass canning jars, but you can use plastic ones if you like. 
  5. Allow jam to set in refrigerator for at least one hour before eating--that gives the chia seeds time to do their thing. You can store the jam in your fridge for up to two weeks and up to a year in the freezer.
