Blackberry Chia Jam

Serves 6 to 8
1 cup blackberries
1 nectarine (or peach), cored and cubed 
Half a lemon, juiced
1 to 2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons chia seeds
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the blackberries, cubed nectarine and lemon juice. As the fruit heats up and the juices bubble and boil, smash the fruit using the back of a fork until they break down. This should take 3 to 5 minutes.
Sweeten the mashed fruit with 1 to 2 tablespoons of honey, to your liking. Add the chia seeds and stir once. Remove from the heat and let the jam set for about 5 minutes to thicken. Cool and transfer to an air tight container and refrigerate. (Makes about 1 cup of jam.)
This jam will keep for 2 weeks in the fridge.
