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

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 😊

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