Raspberry Rose Chia Jam

Raspberry Rose Chia Jam
makes 8 ounces of jam

Chia jam is a great way to incorporate omega 3-packed chia seeds into your daily diet.  Spread on toast or serve warm on top of oatmeal or pancakes.  I love using frozen berries for chia jam since it's so easy, but really any kind of fruit would work.  Rosewater is totally optional, but I think it adds just a little floral edge to this jam to make it more interesting.  You could add vanilla instead.

12-ounce bag of frozen raspberries (3 cups)
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon rosewater
1 tablespoon chia seeds

1. In a small pot, heat raspberries until they start to break down and release their juices.  Add maple syrup, rosewater and chia seeds and simmer until mixture reaches a thin jam-like consistency (it will firm up more as it cools).  Remove and store in the fridge for 5 days.
