Goji Berry Jam Recipe

Goji Berry Jam Recipe

Agar agar is a tasteless seaweed found in health food stores and Asian markets that acts as a wonderful natural gelling agent similar to gelatin, but this version is vegan! If you're not able to find if, you can substitute chia seeds for a similar effect.

INGREDIENTS 

½ cup orange juice

1½ Tbsp. lemon juice

¼ cup Navitas Organics Goji Berries, roughly chopped

3 Tbsp. Navitas Organics Goji Powder

1 tsp. agar agar powder

Optional substitution: Navitas Organics Chia Seeds*

DIRECTIONS

In a small bowl or cup‚ mix all the ingredients together except for the whole goji berries. Pour into a saucepan and gently bring to a boil‚ simmering for about one minute.

Transfer the mixture back into the bowl and stir in the goji berries. Place mixture in the refrigerator for a minimum of an hour - allowing the agar to set and the goji berries to plump up. 

*If using chia seeds, simply mix all ingredients together and refrigerate for at least one hour, stirring halfway through.

The jam will keep in a sealed jar for about 2 weeks.
