So, I love jam. I mean, I LOVE jam! I’m like Joey in friends. But I don’t like sugar. Well, I like sugar it’s just that it gets me really, really tired so I try to avoid it. However this really easy jam only includes 3 ingredients and no added sugar! Just make a small batch at a time since there are no preservatives in, but it will keep for a good few days in the fridge.
For a small jar you will need (the jar I used is 450 ml and is a bit more than half full):
- 9 apricots
- 2 ml vanilla extract (or more if you really like vanilla)
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
Peel and cut the apricots in halves. Remove the kernels and put the apricots in a sauce pan. On a low temperature let them simmer till there’s just a goo this will take anything from 15-30 minutes depending on the hardness of the fruit. If you like some fruit bits leave them, however I don’t so I used a potato masher to make a smooth goo. Add the chia seeds and vanilla extract and stir. Pour it it a jar and let cool. Stir after 15 minutes so the chia seeds get evenly distributed. Done!
