Blueberry Lavender Chia Jam

in Recipes

The abundance of summer produce is a very good thing. It is especially wonderful when it involves cartons of farm fresh blueberries and homegrown lavender.

Having fresh jam around the house is a really fantastic way to consume more fruit and fiber in a creative and delicious meal. Really, the only thing better than homemade blueberry jam is homemade blueberry jam that’s versatile, and has lavender in it too.

For instance, you can use this jam for:

Bread & toast
As a perfect accompaniment to an antipasti plate
For the most delicious pb&j
On sandwiches & a unique grilled cheese
Breakfast goodies like pancakes, French toast, waffles, oatmeal & overnight oats
Baked goods such as cookies and cakes
Chia seed pudding
Vinaigrettes & marinades
Drinks & cocktails

See, versatility is a good thing in the kitchen. So are the additions of fiber, cell-loving antioxidants, and nutritious healthy fats onto every dish you top this jam with.

Inspired by The Naked Fig.

2 T dried lavender
4 T boiling water
1 cup blueberries

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
