Servings3 cups


  • 1 ½ lbs strawberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp ground vanilla (or 1/2 tsp vanilla extract)
  • 5 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1-2 tbsp sweetener (honey, agave, maple syrup, etc), optional


  • Wash and hull the strawberries, then cut them into quarters. Place the strawberries in a saucepan, and bring to a simmer over medium heat, just to draw out the juices. Use a potato masher to slightly mash the berries, leaving them as chunky as you like.
  • Remove the strawberries from the heat and stir in the remaining ingredients.
  • Scrape the jam into a bowl, cover and refrigerate for 4 hours until thickened. If you'd like it a little thicker, stir in another tablespoon of chia seeds, and let chill for another hour.
  • Spoon the jam into jars. The jam can be refrigerated for up to 1 week, or frozen for up to 3-6 months.
