Serves: 2 jars
  • 500g (2 ½ cups) Cherries
  • 2 Large oranges freshly juiced
  • 250ml (1 cup) Water
  • 4 Tablespoons natural honey (use agave syrup for a vegan option)
  • 4 Tablespoons organic chia seeds
  1. Wash well the cherries under cold water, rinse and de-stone them.
  2. Combine the de-stoned cherries, the orange juice and the water in a large saucepan and cook over a medium heat, stirring occasionally until the fruit softens, approximately for 10 minutes. Once soft add the 4 tablespoons honey (or agave syrup for vegan option) and the chia seeds, reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat, pour the hot jam into sterilized jars and seal. Allow it to cool and store in the fridge for about 2 weeks.
