Could you freeze these, or for that matter any of the fruit jams made with chia?  I am not real familiar with chi an dam just learning since I went keto.  

Reply

Absolutely! It's best to freeze them in an ice tray if you think you can't eat them within 1 week (stored in the fridge and sealed).

Looks amazing, i have an allergy to chia seeds, could you recommend a substitute please?

Reply

Thank you! You could use gelatin like we did here: Super Smooth Low-Carb Strawberry Jam

I did my own take on this one and used blueberry's in place of raspberry's the results were amazing!

Thank you for your lovely feedback Kathleen!

Can I use strawberries instead?  Would the carb count be similar?  

Reply

You can! Here's a similar recipe: Low-Carb Strawberry & Basil Chia Jam

Hei, I wanna try your recipe because I have so much rasberries at home I don’t know what to do with it.. but I have one question about storing - do I need to keep made jars in the fridge for the whole time or just when I opened ones?

Reply

You will need to keep them in the fridge the whole time. Also, if you're making a large batch it's best if you preserve the jam using the canning method. Once preserved, these can be kept outside the fridge until they are opened.

Sounds very good. Question, why add balsamic?

Reply

You can leave it out but it goes well with raspberries and strawberries. It's just for flavour 😊

Very inspiring!I am going to add some chopped up chilli and a tablespoon of fried diced onion,then put some on top of baked camembert or brie....💥

That sounds amazing! I actually used this chia jam to make baked brie the other day (recipe soon) 😊
