Easy Delicious Refrigerator Jam Recipe

Boy, do I ever have an awesome recipe to share with you today?

I bet I can come up with 10 reasons that it is awesome. Here goes...

1.You don't add any refined sugar.
2. It tastes delicious.
3. You don't need pectin! Wahoo!
4. It uses only 4 super healthy ingredients.
5. It is loaded with Vitamin C.
6. It is loaded with fiber to keep you fuller longer.
7. It is also loaded with Omega 3's to help your brain, hair, skin, nails, and so much more!
8. It's full of antioxidants to fight off all those icky free radicals in our bodies.
9. My entire family loves it!
10. It is even raw! No cooking required!

Now, how about that, huh? It could be the most perfect jam there is!

I will get right to the recipe now, so you can run and make it yourself.

Strawberry-Rhubarb Refrigerator Jam 
Thanks to Thankful Expressions for the original recipe -

1 + 1/3 cup strawberries (I used fresh, but you can use frozen too)
2/3 cup rhubarb (again, you can use fresh or frozen)
2 T raw honey
2 T chia seeds (I used Salba Chia, which is my favorite kind)

Process all ingredients in a blender, transfer to jars and refrigerate overnight.  The chia seeds will gel, thickening the fruit puree.
This is delicious served on toast, PB and J's, and even eaten from a spoon. (But, I would never do that!)
For those of you who have never made jam yourself, this is the perfect recipe to try. I can't even imagine how you could screw it up. It is that easy.



  1. Wow this is awesome! Jam/jelly can be so expensive at the store and I have some great frozen rhubarb to use up so this is great! Thanks for sharing!!

    1. So glad that you are excited about this! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

  2. Wow, I have never heard of jam being made this way! i can't wait to try it, thank you very much, I am going to share this with my mom who loves to make jelly, (but i have never seen her do it this way, thank you.

    1. I think you'll love it. So easy, so healthy, so yummy! What's not to love?

  3. How long will it last? I made some last night. So delicious!

    1. If you aren't going to eat it all in a couple days, just stick it in the freezer. Take it out whenever you want some. :-)

  4. This is great! I used to have access to lots of backyard rhubarb, now only at the store. It would be worth it to pay a bundle for rhubarb to try this!
