100% more Omega 3 than salmon; 64% more potassium than a banana; three times more iron than spinach ~ Chia seeds pack a healthy crunch in this simple fruit spread:
2 Cups Red Raspberries (or fruit of choice)
2 Tablespoons Honey or Maple Syrup +/-
2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds
Place berries, sweetener and lemon juice in a medium sauce pan. Heat to boiling, then press berries down as they soften. Add chia seeds. Simmer on low heat for 5 minutes. Taste (I used 2 tablespoons maple syrup and 1 tablespoon of wildflower honey). Let sit in pan for 15 minutes. Place in sterile jars and keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
Serve with Miyoko's European Style Cultured Vegan Butter on a delicious slice of Savory Herb Quick Bread here. And for the amazing benefits of chia seeds, see the diagram below.
