Raw Cherry Chia Jam

This raw cherry chia jam is incredibly easy to make and totally swoon-worthy. Making it is as simple as tossing a bunch of fresh cherries (pit them first or your blender will never forgive you) and pure maple syrup into a blender, blending on high, and then stirring in chia seeds. The chia seeds become gelatinized overnight and thicken the blended cherry mixture to yield a jam-like consistency by morning.
