Cherry Chia Conserve
This is a basic method of making a refined-sugar-free black cherry jam.
What you need:
1 cup pitted fresh cherries
1/2 cup water
2 tbls chia seeds
1 teaspoon coconut sugar (optional)
Put cherries (pitted and halved) and water in a pan then simmer them for 7 mins. If you are really lazy, you can buy a cherry pitter from City 'Super!
Take the pan off the heat then stir in 2 tbls chia seeds and allow to cool.
Refrigerate overnight and wake up to homemade jam!
Add coconut sugar to taste if you so desire. I used 1 teaspoon. Pile onto hot buttered toast.
This was homemade (ish) bread using a 10 grain mix from Bob's Red Mill.
Makes one small pot.
