Homemade Jelly

Made my homemade jelly last night.  Better than store bought for a number of reasons — no added cane sugar and mine includes omega 3 fats from chia seeds, which don’t really have much taste.  You put chia seeds into water and they swell up and create a dough-like substance that’s sticky.  Then you buy frozen fruit.  I like the organic strawberries/banana blend.  Put the frozen fruit into the chia seeds mixture and crush with a potato masher. You have your jelly with no added sugar, all the natural fiber from the strawberries and bananas, and the healthy boost from omega 3 fat.  So much better than store bought, which has no omega 3 fat, is usually loaded with added sugar (usually sugar cane), and has all the fiber stripped away.
