New Zealand Chef, Megan May swears by her strawberry chia jam, which is chock-full of freshly picked berries, wholesome chia seeds and smooth honey.
“This jam is a great way to use up fresh berries when they are abundant. It’s very quick and easy to make and most importantly, the kids love it!” says Megan. “It also makes for a great gift, just mix up a few batches and recycle some cute old jars and start ‘spreading’ the love.”
For an added twist, serve it onbread with almond butter or on top of your bircher muesli or breakfast granola.
