Healthy Homemade Strawberry Jam Recipe

This past weekend we went to a strawberry farm and picked some of the most scrumptious strawberries you have ever seen in your life.


Ramsey loved every second of it and was so proud, carefully putting each strawberry into our bucket {with mandatory clapping after each.one. of course 😂}

We were insanely sore the next day and may not have a future in agriculture at all, but it did drum up a jam recipe that is SO GOOD. And the eating part we can handle. 😉

(This place was so family friendly with a food truck on site, inflatables, and games for the family definitely recommend it if your looking for something unique to do with your family. Going early morning is best to ☺️}

Ramsey was working mightly hard to catch the attention of the food truck workers to say “hi,” once they noticed-he was beside himself. 🙂

HEALTHY HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY JAM

  • 1 pound of strawberries
  • 4-5 tsp of honey
  • 2 tsp. of flax seeds
  • 2 tsp. of chia seeds
  1. Blend the strawberries in the blender + add to a medium saucepan with low heat
  2. add your honey and flax seeds
  3. bring to a small boil (once see one or two bubbles rise to surface); add chia seeds and stir 1 minute
  4. take off heat + put jam into a jar
  5. let the jam sit overnight in fridge

The chia seeds will act as the “gel” to make the consistency of the jam + add lots of nutrients and omegas along with the flax seed. (warning: must use chia seeds, no other seed will serve as a substitute.)
