I was searching for a recipe for home-made jam and found this amazing, simple & extra quick recipe at healthylivinghowto.com using wild blueberries and chia seeds for home-made jam! I knew chia seeds could be used in smoothies or baking, but I had no idea I could use it in jams. It works amazingly well as a thickener and adds no extra carbs. Almost all carbs in chia seeds come from fiber and there are many health benefits: chia seeds are a good source of omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

Instructions

  1. Wash and clean the rhubarb and strawberries. For bright red jam, I used pink rhubarb but if you use green rhubarb, the jam will be dark orange.

  2. Slice them into medium-small pieces and place them in a small pan. Add water and bring to boil over medium heat. When the fruit starts to get soft, remove from the heat and mash with a fork into desired consistency.

  3. Add stevia and mix in well. Low-Carb Strawberry & Rhubarb Jam
  4. Add chia seeds, ground ginger, cinnamon and mix well. If you are using the jam straight away, leave to rest for 15-20 minutes until it becomes jellied and firm. Mix before using.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Who could I contact, to see if I could can and seal this recipe for low carb Strawberry Rhubarb Jam? Thanks Kathleen

Hi Kathleen, you can preserve this recipe using the canning method, especially if making a large batch.

Fantastic! I mixed liquid stevia, powdered stevia and powdered Swerve. Absolutely delicious! Thank you so much!

My family doesn’t like the way the little chia seeds feel, would it do the same thing for the jam if I used ground chia seeds?

Reply

You could use either but I personally prefer whole. Ground chia seeds may make the jam bitter and the texture slimy. What you could do instead is to use a little gelatin (about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon).

Hi. I hate to say it, but... I very much dislike rhubarb. Lol. Can I just add more strawberries or would that add too much carbs?
Thank you

Me again! I can't stop raving!! I've made this recipe a few times. The last time I mixed a frozen berry mix from Costco. I just calculated the macros on My Fitness Pal and came up with 3g total carbs per Tbsp, and 1.2g of net carbs. 👏🏼

Awesome! 😊

Could you do this as a freezer jam without the water bath method? My garden is full of rhubarb for the first time. First year it really produced.

Reply

Hi Liz, yes you can skip the water bath and freeze it too 😊

Reply

Can you can this in a water bath and perserve it for shelf life?

Reply

Yes, you can preserve it in a water bath - it works too 😊 The rhubarb will keep it fresh for longer (in the fridge) due to its high acidity but not for months. I usually make 3-4 jars and leave one in the fridge, while preserving the rest of them.

Reply

What is a water bath and how do I do that to preserve?

Reply

I don't have a guide on my blog but if you google "how to preserve jam", you'll find detailed information.

I simply love tart fruits like rhubarb and gooseberries.

I used it for strawberry & rhubarb bars (still in the queue of recipes to be posted) 😊
