Chia Berry Spread (Jam)

Makes about 1 1/2 cups
Author: Molly Patrick


  • 1 cup blackberries (130g)
  • 1 cup quartered grapes (160g)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons ground chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (more or less, depending on how sweet you like your jam)


  • Place the blackberries, grapes, and lemon juice in a small saucepan and cook over medium - low heat for 3 minutes, stirring often. 
  • Turn off the heat and add the ground chia seeds and the maple syrup and stir. 
  • Mash the fruit with a potato masher and transfer the jam to a glass container and allow to cool before storing in the fridge. This jam won’t get super thick like store bought jam, but it will thicken up a bit as it cools. 


  • This jam will stay good for about a week in the fridge.
  • You can use any combo of fruit you like.
