Immune-Supporting Chia Jam with Black Elderberry

Recipe by: @babybychickpeas

Add some sweetness to your day with this Immune-supporting Chia Jam with Black Elderberry. It's easy and delicious!


  • 2 cups fresh sliced strawberries
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp Sambucol Black Elderberry syrup

Makes about 2 cups.


  • Begin by adding the sliced strawberries into a saucepan and heating over medium heat for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  • Once the fruit is warm & beginning to break down, smash the berries with the back of a fork or spatula until there are no large chunks remaining. 
  • Add in the maple syrup and stir. 
  • Turn off the burner & remove the mixture from heat. Stir in the chia seeds and Sambucol black elderberry syrup and let "gel" for 10 minutes before storing in a glass jar or reusable container in the refrigerator. 

Smother on toast & sandwiches, or mix a dollop into your morning oatmeal or yogurt for a healthy touch of sweetness, fiber, & immune-supporting anthocyanins.

This jam will save for up to 7-10 days in an air-tight container in the fridge.
