Looking for a holiday appetizer that will dazzle your guests? Look no further than this Holiday Crostini with Strawberry Chia Jam. Thanksgiving is hands-down my favourite holiday. I get giddy from pulling on a warm sweater, cozying up on the cooler days and of course, enjoying the seasonal fruits and vegetables. But incorporating these foods into a festive get-together with loved ones is the highlight of it all.
If you are planning on hosting some friends and family this holiday season and want to impress them with a flavourful appetizer that tastes like you put in more effort than needed, look no further. I partnered with California Strawberries [Ad] to create this Holiday Crostini with Strawberry Chia Seed Jam. You only need 8 of these sweet berries to make up a whole serving of fruit so consider this snack jam-packed!
In this recipe, the California strawberries provide a refreshing take on a classic appetizer while providing nutritional benefits. Packed with fibre and an excellent source of vitamin C, California strawberries are a tasty and convenient way to boost these nutrients. What better way to welcome the cooler months and the holiday season?!
Once the chia seeds get combined with the juices of the berries and are heated, they start working their magic! As they cool, they create a gel-like texture, giving us that perfect jam consistency. With a bit of flavour from the vanilla extract and sweetness from the maple syrup, this may be your new favourite (and easy-to-make) jam!
California strawberries are readily available right now. Organic California strawberries are available at select stores.
