Enjoy it on your morning toast, to sweeten your oatmeal or yogurt… or simply have a spoonful! This jam is also a sweet temptation served with cheese.

  • Makes about 250 ml (1 cup)
  • Preparation : 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 500 ml (2 cups) fresh blue honeyberries
  • 45 ml (3 tablespoons) maple syrup
  • 15 ml (1 tablespoon) chia seeds

  1. In a medium-sized pot, over high heat, combine the blue honeyberries and maple syrup. Stirring constantly and, from time to time, lightly crushing the blue honeysuckle berries in order to extract a little juice, bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

  3. Pour into a small food processor and blend until desired texture is achieved. You can also use a mixing arm.
