I know I promised you a post dedicated to cherries when they are in season, and I will stay true to my word, but a sudden urge for homemade jam got me thinking I can't wait until summer, so I made an executive decision and recruited those sweet little gems a few months ahead of time. And I'm sure glad I did. They bring these seed butter bars to life, enhancing them with vibrant colors and rich flavors. This cherry jam is out of this world! As I took my first spine-tinging bite, I immediately imagined all sorts of ways this stuff can be used. Spread it on your sandwich the way raspberry jam is haphazardly positioned onto a Monte Cristo, or add it to your pizza with some goat cheese and garlic cloves. The possibilities are endless. Make extra (double or triple the recipe) and keep it in your fridge for a few days.
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix chia seed meal into a small bowl with warm water and set aside.
