Rasberry Chia Jam

One thing that has always baffled me is the amount of sugar in commercial jam. On average there is about 55-60g of sugar per 100g. That is absolutely shocking to me. Luckily you can make your own and honestly it takes less than 10 minutes to make. So simple. -- The Nourished Lifestyle
