This jam uses natural sweetener and is so full of goodness. It will make such a great addition to your breakfast buns or meat dishes & it’s so easy to make.

To make 600ml of jam you’ll need:

500gr fresh strawberries

1 and 1/2 lemons (juice & zest)

2tbsp chilli flakes & 1 fresh medium hot chilli

4tbsp chia seeds (to make it more jelly like)

3tbsp natural sweetener (I used agave syrup)

Start by chopping strawberries and adding them to a sauce pan. Squeeze in lemon juice, zest & sweetener and gently simmer the mix for about 10 minutes. As soon as strawberries have formed compote like texture, add chilli and chia seeds and simmer until the mixture has formed jelly like consistency.

Take it off the hob & fill in sterilized jars. This jam should last for 4-6 weekes when kept in a cool place.
