Units Scale
  • 24 oz. (700 grams) blackberries
  • 5 apples

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • Zest of 1 orange

  • 1/2 cup chia seeds (approximately 5 tablespoons)

  • 1 teaspoon liquid stevia


Remove the Stems

Make sure to thoroughly inspect the crop, removing all the stems.

Wash the Blackberries

It is very important to wash the blackberries properly.  Cover them with water and add a generous splash of apple cider vinegar. .

Prepare the Apples

Wash the apples and peel them. Once they are washed and peeled, cut the apples and put them in the food processor. Puree the apples, then add 1 ½ cup of water. Reserve in a bowl.

Cook the Blackberries

Put your blackberries into the processor and pulse them until they are puree. Cook the blackberries for 5 minutes. Add the apple puree and cook for 20 more minutes.

Let the Jam Cool

Once the fruit is cooked, transfer the mixture to a glass bowl and let it cool completely.

Add Chia Seeds

Once the jam is completely cool, it’s a good time to add chia seeds. This will help the chia seeds keep their properties. Add ½ cup chia seeds, approximately 5 Tablespoons. Mix everything.

Put the jam in a glass container and let it sit in the fridge overnight.

Add Lemon Juice

Wash the lemon, halve it, and squeeze the juice over the mixture. Mix into the jam.

Add the Stevia

Adding Stevia is a personal choice. The apple puree helps sweeten the jam and neutralize the sourness of the blackberries.

Add the Orange Zest

You can zest the orange with a zester, grate the zest, or peel the orange and put the rind in the food processor to get the zest. Add the orange zest to the jam and mix until it is integrated.
