Yesterday I went blueberry picking at North Village in Shoo Town (300 yen for 1 cup + one or ten cheeky testers whilst picking) with my beautiful neighbour and her delicious baby whom by the way has been making me insanely clucky! Japanese babies are so scrummy!! Today, we made raw blueberry and apple jam – so healthy and supa easy! Please try it and let me know what you think! FYI, this recipe is naturally free from refined sugar, gluten and dairy.
2 cups fresh blueberries
1/4 cup natural apple juice
2 tbsp pure maple syrup
2 tbsp chia seed
In a food processor or blender, mix together the blueberries, apple juice and maple syrup until well combined and chunky.
Pour mixture into 1 or 2 jam jars then add chia seeds.
Mix mix mix thoroughly.
Refrigerate for a few hours before spreading on hot toast or mixing through greek yoghurt -yummy!
