Raspberry Chia Jam
“A delicious fruity low-sugar jam which is wonderfully quick and easy to make. You can also serve it as a coulis, stirred into full-fat yoghurt or coconut-based yoghurt.” p. 209
30-40g pitted dates, finely diced (or 1-2 tsp maple syrup)
125g raspberries (frozen or fresh)
2-3 tsp chia seeds (depending on how thick you like it)
Gently heat the dates in a small pan with 2 tbsp water for about 2 minutes, stirring to form a smooth paste.
Add the raspberries and chia seeds and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
Mash the raspberries with a potato masher or the back of a spoon. The jam can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.
