Paleo Homemade Strawberry Jam is a delicious spread that's perfect on toast or for PB&J. It's made with fresh strawberries, honey, chia seeds and lemon juice. Even though there's no sugar, it's completely delicious!
Place the strawberries in a large pot. Add honey, lemon zest and lemon juice and heat over medium high heat.
Bring to a boil and stir constantly until mixtures thickens. This should take about 10-20 minutes. You don't want it too thick. Use a potato masher to mash up the strawberries slightly.
Taste to check if the jam is sweet enough. Be careful not to burn your tongue. Add more honey, if desired, one tablespoon at a time until it reaches the desired sweetness.
Remove from heat. Stir in the chia seeds.
Let cool and then pour into clean jars. I used 4 small (8 ounce) canning jars. Store jam in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. It also freezes well.
Note: If you would like to preserve the jam for a longer shelf life, you will need to sterilize the jars. I'm not an expert at this, but I found this article with information on sterilizing jars for canning: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/photos/how-to-preserve
