Sugar-free Plum & Blackberry Jam
Vegetarian. Vegan. Gluten Free. Refined Sugar-free. Dairy Free.
150g plums, pips & skin removed
150g blackberries, frozen or fresh
2 tbsp of lemon juice
1 tbsp honey or rice malt syrup
drizzle of vanilla extract or essence
2 tbsp chia seeds
Peel plums and slice in half to remove the pips. Place plums, blackberries, honey or rice malt syrup, lemon juice and vanilla extract or essence in a pot on the stove top for 5mins. Make sure you keep stirring it to prevent the mixture from burning.
Once the berries have started to break down and the mixture starts to gain more liquid and become syrupy place the mixture in the food processor and pulse until desired consistency.
Return the mixture to the pot off the heat and add in 2 tbsp of chia seeds. Mix through well and leave to thicken and cool for 10-15mins.
Pour the thickened mixture into a jar and store it in the fridge. If the Jam isn’t thick enough for your liking, add more chia seeds.
This jam keeps in the fridge for up to 7days. The mixture is delicious with coconut cream and banana, on toast, scones, stirred through greek yogurt or on its own by the spoonful.
