Delicious Blueberry & Elderberry Jam

Delicious Blueberry & Elderberry Jam

Blueberry and elderberry chia jam anyone? I LOVE jam, but I don’t like all the added sugar. So I created this delicious homemade jam alternative that tastes so yummy and has some incredible health benefits!

Have you ever heard of elderberry syrup? We have an amazing local company @feelgoodsyrup that makes it right here in #yeg. What is it? It’s a syrup that extracts all the immune boosting effects of elderberries. You can take it when you’re sick, but ideally, it’s something to take daily to help boost your immunity! And this jam is a super delicious way to do just that! It’s also packed with some antioxidant rich blueberries. So awesome!⠀

To make the jam, add all of the following ingredients into a jar and shake shake shake. Leave on the counter for 30 minutes and then refrigerate overnight. ⠀

•1/2 cup fresh blueberries + 1/4 cup of water, blended until smooth⠀
•1 tablespoon maple syrup⠀
•1/4 cup So Elderberry Good Syrup⠀
•2 tablespoons chia seeds ⠀

This recipe makes just over one cup of jam! Top it on pancakes, add it to your breakfast cookies…YUM! ⠀
