Cherry Flax Jam (Preserve) BM#64

Preserves/Jam can be made from various fruits. I made a batch of Strawberry Jam last summer and it was a hit in our house with a toast or Paratha. This year the Cherry are in season right now. They are really sweet and juicy.
This Jam which i did is sweetened with Maple syrup and flax seeds is used to thicken the jam.
Also it makes it healthy. Flax seeds contains Omega 3 and is supposed to be very healthy.


This week Blogging Marathon's theme is Pickles & Preserves.
Jam's generally contains Pectin but this recipe is so nice that it does not contain any extra ingredient in it. My son also likes this jam particularly because it does not taste too sweet like other Jam.

The recipe is very simple and it does not take too long to make it.
The more thick it is, The shelf life is longer.

Here goes the recipe for Cherry Jam/Preserve:
Recipe Source: One Ingredient Chef
 

Ingredients: 1 1/2 cup Pitted ground Cherry
2-3 table spoon Maple syrup (Optional)
2 Table spoon ground Flax seeds powder/Chia seeds powder



Method: In a blender grind the Cherry, Flax seeds powder and maple syrup to a coarse puree.
Add the mixture in a sauce pan and simmer, uncovered for about 20-25 minutes until it reduces the mixture and also becomes thick in consistency. Once little thick. Switch off the stove.
Allow it cool and then pour it into a Bottles to preserve them.
Refrigerate once done.
This stays good for a week or so. Please use dry spoon while using the jam.
