Frozen Blueberry Jam Recipe – How to make easy homemade 3 ingredient jam with blueberries and chia seeds – without pectin – with the video tutorial.

Frozen Blueberry Jam Recipe

This frozen blueberry jam recipe has only 3 ingredients and is quick and easy to prepare.

You don’t need to fuss with pectin or canning, simply heat the berries, add in chia seeds and sugar, then enjoy!

The homemade jam is delicious as a topping for a decadent cheesecake, scones, mixed through yogurt or enjoyed in a sandwich with peanut butter.

The Ingredients You’ll Need

Here are the 3 simple ingredients that you’ll need for the homemade blueberry jam recipe.

Blueberries – you can use frozen blueberries in homemade jam, as I’ve done in this recipe, or fresh blueberries if they are in season.

The benefit of frozen is that they tend to be cheaper and you can enjoy freshly made jam all year around, not just during berry season.

There’s no need to thaw the berries, just pop them straight into a pot or saucepan and get cooking.

Sugar – you can use regular sugar, brown sugar, stevia, honey or maple syrup in the jars of jam. You can use more or less sugar, depending on the sweetness of the jam you’re after.

Chia Seeds – are used to help the jam set and thicken without the need for pectin of any kind, whether that’s a natural pectin such as lemon juice, lime juice, lemon zest or another kind of added pectin.

This recipe is completely foolproof – you don’t have to worry about the jam setting because the chia seeds will work to thicken the jam to the perfect texture, every time.
