I love my mom's apple jam. Eating it by spoonfuls or spreading it on a piece of crusty bread, to me, it's always a sweet treat reminiscent of my childhood. But the labor-intensive process that turns bags of apples into rows of canned goods stops me from following my mother's culinary footsteps. What modern mom has time for canning apples? I don't. I prefer more effortless method: throw all the ingredients into a blender, puree, taste, and refrigerate. It's that simple. Plus, with the addition of super chia seeds, this jam is not only child's play to make, but a true nutritional champion!
