Total Time: 20 Minutes
Prep: 10 Minutes
Cook: 10 Minutes
Yield: 1 Cup
In a small skillet, add the tart cherries, lemon juice, maple, spices, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon water.
Simmer about 10 minutes over medium heat until cherries begin to break down, stirring occasionally and using the back of a spoon to break them apart.
Once the cherries are broken down, add 2 tablespoons chia seeds and stir until combined. Turn off heat and wait for the jam to thicken, about 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a canning jar and refrigerate; the texture will set even further when chilled. Keeps refrigerated for 2 weeks.
