To prepare our jam recipe, we picked the simplest foundation which is using strawberries and dates. However, the variations are endless such as replacing the fruit and adding chia seeds or any of your favorites. Just know if adding any seeds you will need to increase the water in the recipe as seeds consume most of the water and we don’t want your jam to become a pudding. Now would we? In any way, just get out of your comfort zone and try get with our jam.
400 grams of organic strawberries (washed and cut in halves)
135 grams of organic dates (washed – seed removed and cut)
90 grams of water
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat, place your strawberries, dates, water, and mash the fruits together to combine them. I find this process helps them to cook faster and thoroughly.
Bring the fruit mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally to make sure it doesn’t stick. Your fruit mixture will start to bubble, and slowly become of ticker texture. This is the sign your jam is close to being done.
Tip: The quick test to know if your jam is done is to use a wooden spoon to mix your jam and removing it. Wait for it to cool down and run your finger through the spoon. If it leaves a clear mark then your jam is ready for cooling down.
When the jam is ready in texture, you can transfer them to your glass jar for it to completely cool down and be stored. Or, you also have the option to use a food processor and mix your jam for a creamier version without the chunks. This jam can be modified for any taste. Enjoy!
