WTF Do I Do With
That’s Tasty™ Fresh Basil ?!

‐ Raspberry-Basil Chia Seed Jam ‐

5–7 leaves That’s Tasty Fresh Basil, thinly sliced

2 cups fresh raspberries 

Juice from ½ lemon and a little lemon zest

2 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp maple syrup or honey, optional for sweetness 


Prep Time: 5 min

Cook Time: 15 min

Servings: 1 cup


1 Heat fruit in a small saucepan, making sure to stir it around every minute or so. Once heated, use a fork to break down the fruit to your desired consistency. Remove from heat. 

2 Add lemon juice, zest, basil, and chia seeds to the heated fruit. Stir all ingredients together until well combined. Taste, then add maple syrup or honey if you prefer a sweeter jam. 

3 Allow jam to cool for 5–10 minutes; it will thicken as it cools. Serve immediately or store in a sealed container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.

Tips: Skip lemon zest for a sweeter jam, or add additional for a tarter jam. Feel free to adjust ingredients as necessary, to taste.
