This blueberry lime chia seed jam will be a staple in your kitchen because it’s so easy to make and delicious! Growing up, I was able to spend a lot of time in Virgina on vacation visit my grandparents. It was the best time. They lived in a super tiny town, out in the country. They had a giant yard, my grandfather built a swing set. There were picnic tables where we spent evenings eating dinner outside. My grandfather had a riding mower and when we were old enough to sit on his lap while he mowed the lawn – it was the best!
My grandma was an excellent home cook. She was old school, with an old orange juice container that she added leftover grease to, and she cooked future meals with that! Her specialty though was canning. I still have yet to do that in my adult life, but she preserved her summer bounty to eat during the winter. One of which was grape jelly.
She had several long vines of purple grapes that would sometimes be right for picking while we were visting. Her method was a little involved. We had to cut the grapes, she cooked them down, then let the juice drain overnight in a cheese cloth. Then it was boiling the jars, making wax for the top and cooking again to seal.
This version of jam is done in about 10 minutes with just a few ingredients. Let me know if you make this!

Blueberry Lime Chia Seed Jam

- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- In a pot, add the blueberries, chia seeds, the juice of one lime, plus the zest of one lime and heat on low heat for about 10 minutes.
- Using a potato masher – mash down most of the blueberries, I like to keep a few whole to make it chunkier.
