This Thermomix Strawberry Rhubarb Jam is bursting with fruity goodness and flavour. Made with only five ingredients, there’s no manual stirring required thanks to the Thermomix!
I love this recipe, it’s so easy and there’s really no work involved whatsoever. By making the jam in the Thermomix you can rest assured it won’t bubble over or burn the saucepan.
You can use fresh or frozen strawberries. If frozen, just let them thaw a little before cooking. I’ve used honey for sweetness instead of the usual overload of sugar. The chia seeds help thicken the jam without pectin and it continues to thicken up when stored in the fridge.
It’s delicious to have with scones, spread over pancakes or simply enjoyed on toast. It also makes a lovely gift. As it doesn’t contain all the preservatives of supermarket jams it has a shorter shelf life so is best stored in the fridge and consumed within a week.
