Strawberry Orange Chia Jam

I made this jam as a healthy alternative to traditional jam to go with my Hot Cross Buns for Easter Sunday. This recipe is so simple and delicious and can go with most things! I really love the texture and simplicity of this recipe, so that it doesn’t distract from the flavours of it’s accompaniment. Make sure you plan ahead and make this the night before it is needed, or at least a few hours so that there is enough time for the chia seeds to expand. This jam works in perfect harmony with my vegan, gluten free hot cross buns which are in the ‘Snacks’ section of my blog. The jam will keep for up to a week in an air-tight jar. The recipe is enough to make one small size jar!
