Am I late to the party or has anyone tried the 60 sec jam?



Fresh Berry Jam in 60 seconds.

Simply toss 1 cup of your favorite berries into a blender with 1 tbsp of chia seeds, and a tsp of honey (sub?). Blend, poor into a jar and place in the fridge over night. The chia seeds create a lovely jelly like texture to the sweet berries and honey. Fresh, easy, and pectin free jam!

I haven't made this recipe , but I've made jam with chia seeds.

I also like making strawberry pie using chia seeds to make the juice jell up.

Wow. Never heard of such a thing, but it sounds good.

Is there gluten in pectin?

I have no idea? I have never made jam but thought this one sounded so easy and with nothing but good wholesome ingredients.

I have, but I don't use the honey. I use stevia and erythritol I powder. It works nicely, too.

Thank you for this. I usually thicken with a bit of xanthan, but this sounds even better

Thanks for the post.

Peggy,

Just in case you don't know, Netrition carries an sf honey sub that uses xylitol.

Btw, question: do you have any trouble blending the powdered sweeteners into the jam smoothly? I have both of the ones you mentioned. I was thinking that it might be easier to work with the liquid sweetener in this case. Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Yes it is a wonderful site. Did you find anything for your sweeet tooth.

The clouds you should be able to eat. Just watch your serving size.
My sister used them and the cream cheese muffins on induction.

I have SF honey and boy oh boy I have to watch how much I use because it causes TERRIBLE gas issues. Mine has maltitol though so this one you mentioned with the xylitol may not to this.

Beebs,

I have the one with malitol too. This one is definitely different. If the malitol cause issues, maybe the one with xylitol would work for you.

Do you let the chia gell first and then blend? I was told that chia will only gell if the seed is left whole?? I want to try this.

Does the chia leave crunchy bits like raspberry seeds in the jam or does the blender get rid of them? I've only used chia a couple of times and couldn't get past the crunchy consistency. I found that very unpleasant. I only put up with that with raspberries because they taste so good.

LindaSue - I'll let you know on Saturday when I pick up some fresh berries at the Farmer's Market. I dont notice it much but I havent used chia in a while either. Unless someone else can answer?

Brendajm - I have blended chia several times in the past and it still gel's.

I grind up the chia seeds in the coffee grinder. I don't notice them, but maybe that's just me.

I usually put the ground chia in muffins and add just a tad extra liquid.

I'm trying the jam this weekend also and I will report back.

Gracie Pamona Pectin is what I used in all of my low carb jams.They have a website for a store locator I think. They do have it at Amazon.
I wish Netrition carried it.

They also have Ball no and low sugar pectin at about any grocery store.
I've heard people like it.

This one is good if you want to make a small amount too.

I hope that helps.

Esther,

Netrition has a request an item feature. Maybe you could contact them and ask them to carry it. It's worth a shot.

Graciejean, if you buy the Pomona Pectin, it comes with instructions. You would use way less pectin for a cup of berries. I would guess 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. I don't know about the other brands.

Tried this with strawberries. It tastes basically like thickened pureed strawberries. It's fine, but the chia doesn't do anything other than thicken it. They did remain a bit crunchy as well, but that didn't bother me. It just wasn't very jam-like to me. I do have pomona pectin, might have to try that if I want to make something a bit more authentic.

Gracie they have a sheet that tells you how to use their product. You can also make up your own recipes with the Pamoma.

I don't know about the Ball, I've never used the product.

I made the chia jam recipe the other day.

I didn't actually measure, just guesstimated the amount of strawberries, etc.

It was a pint after I pureed the frozen strawberries. Two days later, it it half a pint and surprisingly to me, jam consistency...but it defintely needs more sweetner.

It tastes like strawberry jam--as for any chia noticeablility, the strawberry seeds probably blend it with the chia and you cannot tell the difference. It's such a simple recipe...thanks to whoever invented it.

Now I'm going to try it with other berries--I really like it, I will add more sweetner next time.
