Chia seeds are amazing. These tiny little seeds are packed with fibre, omega-3 fatty acids and are low in net carbs. They are perfect for making low-carb jams where they act as thickening agent, because they can absorb up to 12 times their weight of liquid when soaked.
Apart from berry jams, I use chia for making keto puddings, healthy breakfast smoothies, grain-free cereal and crackers. Ground chia seeds can even be used for thickening sauces or in low-carb tortillas. If you search "chia" on my blog, you will find all the recipes using them.
Just like chia seeds, blackberries are low in sugar and net carbs. A cup of blackberries only contains about 6 grams of net carbs which is even less than other berries. August-September is the best time to pick them. The only drawback is that they don't last fresh for long, no more than 2-3 days when refrigerated. Every year, we pick 10-20 pounds of blackberries, most of which I either freeze or turn into chia jam and preserve in jars.
