  • 10.6 oz. (300 gr. ) Frozen blackcurrants
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 1/2 vanilla pod
  • 1 tbsp white or black chia seeds (I used white)
  • 4-6 Medjool dates


  1. Parboil the frozen blackcurrants in a pan with 1 tbsp. of water.
  2. Add the seeds from half a vanilla pod and also the pod itself.
  3. Cook it only for a few minutes until most of the berries are soft, then let it cool down a bit.
  4. Take out the vanilla pod and put the slightly cooled blackcurrants in food processor along with dates and 1 tbsp. of chia seeds.
  5. Blend until there are no more pieces of dates, and pour the jam into class jars.
  6. Jams can be kept for approximately a week in the fridge.
