The gelling effect of the chia seeds in Skinny B makes it a perfect alternative to using sugar and pectin in jam. And no cooking required! Skinny B’s neutral flavour lets the fruit shine. I don’t usually use any sweetener in this jam, as I’ve noticed the less processed sugar I eat, the sweeter fruit tastes, but you might want to add a little of your preferred sweetener if your fruit is especially tart.

During the summer months, Skinny B Jam is a great way to enjoy the abundance of local raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries. In winter, this recipe works just as well with frozen fruit (that’s been thawed). A squeeze of lime or lemon brightens the flavour.
I’ve been known to add a teaspoon of finely minced jalapeño pepper, basil or mint when the ingredients and mood present themselves. I spread Skinny B Jam lavishly on pancakes and sometimes I add a teaspoon on top of Two-Ingredient cookies before baking.
