This Cherry Chia Jam is super easy to make and works wonderfully in recipes such as our Black Forest Yogurt Parfaits.
- 2 cups fresh or frozen pitted dark cherries
- 1 teaspoon orange juice
- 3 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
Combine cherries, orange juice and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer and cover, cooking for 15 minutes.
Remove lid and cook for 5 more minutes to reduce liquids, lightly smashing cherries with a wooden spoon.
Stir in chia seeds and pour into a heatproof glass jar. Cover and refrigerate, 2 hours or overnight.
