Black Currant Jam
Currants contain anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants. A diet rich in antioxidants defends you against health risks such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the black currants and lemon juice/zest.
As the mixture begins to boil, mash the fruit with the back of a fork until it breaks down. This should take 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.
Stir in the honey, starting with 1 to 2 tablespoons. Taste, and add more honey (or sweetener of choice) to your liking.
Add the chia seeds and stir to incorporate. Let the jam set for about 5 minutes to thicken.
Cool and transfer to a jar or air-tight container and refrigerate. The jam will keep for approximately 2 weeks in the fridge and may be frozen.
