  • Once the berries are softened, you can gently mash it or break it down with the back of your spatula. Let it simmer for 5 minutes on low to medium flame. Remember high flame will caramelize it and burn it quicker not bringing out the sweetness as it should.
  • When the berries are slightly thickened, add the chia seeds and mix it in. The jam will thicken once the chia seeds added.
