Summer means it’s berry season. Especially if you live in an urban setting, when you get the chance to go to a farm and pick fresh berries, you might go a little crazy.

Now you need to use up all those berries. You don’t want all that time you spent berry picking to go to waste right.

Zero Waste Recipes

One thing I have become passionate about is practicing Zero Waste Cooking and Procedures in my kitchen. There is way too much waste in the world, leading to toxins and other bad things in our environment.

Whenever I come home with a large batch of anything now, I make sure to immediately prep some for further use by making some preservation recipes like jam, pickles, ice cream or if nothing else, I freeze some to be decided later how I will utilize it.

Would you like to practice more Zero Waste in your kitchen, not only contributing to a cleaner environment for the next generation, but also saving you some money in the process?

Recipe Notes

Can you make jam without sugar?

This is a healthy jam recipe using only honey and no processed sugars. Even the honey quantity can be adjusted per your own preference.

Don’t be alarmed if the jam seems quite thin when you transfer it from the blender. Once it chills overnight in the refrigerator, it will thicken.

However, without the sugar volume, it is not quite as thick as your average jam recipe. However, this slight variation is worth the swap for this low sugar Healthy Blueberry Jam.

Not to mention all the extra fiber and protein your are getting from the chia seed.

Ingredient Substitutions

If you do not have mango juice, it can be substituted with any juice like lemon juice, apple juice or orange juice.

I added some lavender because I like floral accents in desserts and jams. It enhances the fruit flavor, as you can see in some of my other jam recipes like Mango Strawberry Lavender Jam and Strawberry Rose Chile Jam. If you don’t have dried lavender readily available, try rose, hyacinth or jasmine.

Of course, not having any of these florals is no reason not make this Easy Jam Recipe. Just omit it! The jam will still be delicious full of fresh blueberry flavor!

    What a beautiful color of the jam and love that it is so simple to make. I have lot of frozen blueberries in hand. I wonder if I can use it in the recipe. I have been thinking of using chia in preserve for a long time now.
