This delicious recipe comes from The Gracious Pantry. I like it not only because it tastes great but also because it demonstrates how adaptable Chia is in almost any recipe. Here, Chia turns a potentially unhealthy, sugar laden, spread into a reservoir of nutrition. Enjoy!
2 cups strawberries – cleaned and chopped
1 cup water
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup honey
Step 1 – Place all ingredients into a metal pot and bring to a boil.
Step 2 – Reduce heat slightly so the contents of the pot don’t splatter all over your stove, but still bubbles in the pot.
Step 3 – Stir constantly! The chia seeds burn on the bottom of the pot very easily. So keep stirring (I had to change pots half way through because the seeds burned so easily).
Step 4 – Stir and boil until the mixture has reduced by half and has thickened. Again, it will not be as thick as jam, but it sill definitely thicken.
Step 5 – Pour into a clean glass jar and allow to cool for 1 hour. Place in the fridge overnight to continue cooling.
The results were not what I expected, but delicious just the same. This is NOT a really sweet spread. It’s mildly sweet and would perfectly compliment some nut butter on a rice cracker. In other words, a fantastic addition to any nut butter snack.
Eat and Enjoy!
