How to Make No-Cook Quick Berry Jam: Tip Tuesday

No Cook Quick Berry Jam

Who doesn't love jam? When I think of jam, I imagine a sweet treat to spread on english muffins, biscuits, or bread along with a slab of butter.

Other than a quick and flavorful spread, fresh jam comes in handy in a variety of ways. It can be used as a filling for cookies, cakes, and pies. It can even be mixed in with plain yogurt or oatmeal to add a little sweetness.

If you have access to berries, you should be making jam. Don't be worried about whether you have the time to make jam or not, because you can make jam in 5 minutes with this simple method.

The Secret to Quick Berry Jam

Jam can achieve a good consistency almost instantly with the use of chia seeds. Flax seeds can also be used. That means no cooking, no gelatin or pectin, and the quickest berry jam known to man.

Chia seeds are full of antioxidants, fiber, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids, which kicks the nutritional value of your berry jam up a notch.

You can make jam with:

Use honey to naturally sweeten your jam instead of refined sugar. Because it's not heated, you'll also get all the benefits of fresh honey mixed right in.

The result is a fresh berry jam that is actually 100% good for you!

As for preserving your jam, it will keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge or up to one year in the freezer. I recommend keeping your jam in freezer jam jars.

  1. I had this recipe from another site and it said it only kept for a week, so I just threw out 3 jars, darn, darn, darn, darn. Wish I had saw t his first. I had one jar that had so much pressure the lid was bent, when I opended it, it swelled out the top and it looked like smoke came out. Didn’t want to take a chance on any of it and tossed it all. Hated to, they tasted so good and such a waste of fruit and organic chia seeds. 🙁

  2. My developer is trying to convince me to
    move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for
    about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
