Easy Strawberry Jam


  • 3 cups strawberries
  • 3/4 cup of sugar or 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • pinch of salt


  1. Wash the strawberries and remove the green tops, and chop into chunks.
  2. Add the strawberries, sugar (if using), lemon juice and salt to a saucepan.
  3. Stir over medium-low heat until the sugar is broken down and dissolved.
  4. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring the mixture to a rolling boil.
  5. Stir frequently and mash the strawberries as you stir.
  6. Continue to boil the mixture until the jam is thick and bubbly (about 8-10 mins).
  7. If using chia seeds instead of the sugar add them to the mixture now and stir.
  8. Transfer the jam to a jar and let it cool to room temperature.
  9. Seal jars and store in the refrigerator for about 10 days or freeze for later.
