Easy Strawberry Chia Jam

I wanted to create a recipe that would use a lot of strawberries in a delicious way. Other than being super yummy, homemade strawberry jam is easy to make, only requires a few simple ingredients, and doesn’t require as much sugar as one might think. I cut the sugar way down, which left more strawberry flavor and the perfect amount of tartness. I also added a handful of chia seeds, which gives the jam an amazing texture and a big boost of nutrition (in case you care).
