Homemade Berry, Lemon and Chia Jam

Introduction: Homemade Berry, Lemon and Chia Jam

About: I am an English expat mum of two boys living in. In my spare time I love to bake (the gooey-er the better), and I am on an eternal search for the perfect gluten free homemade bread. I have my own blog and also…

Homemade jam is SO simple to make, using only a few ingredients and taking only a short while.

Step 1: What You Need

To make this berry, lemon and chia seed jam you will need:


  • The juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 400g berries (frozen or fresh)
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar


  • Medium sized, heavy-bottomed pan
  • Fork
  • 1 large glass jar (or two smaller ones)

Step 2: Cook the Berries

Place the berries and maple syrup in the pan and squeeze in the juice of half a lemon.

Cook on a medium heat for around 10 minutes.

Step 3: Get Mashing

Using a fork, mash any larger pieces of fruit that still remain.

Step 4: Add the Chia Seeds

Sprinkle over the chia seeds and then stir in.

Cook for another 10-15 minutes, until the jam is nice and thick.

Leave to cool completely.

Step 5: Pour Into Jars

Pour jam into the jar(s) and place in the fridge. The jam will last for up to two weeks.

Step 6: Enjoy!

Eat with crusty bread, poured over Greek yoghurt or in your favourite sponge cake!
