How to make the Homemade Raspberry Jam:

This really is so much simpler than you might think, no thermometers, no preserving pans etc. Just fruit and a saucepan

Put the raspberries, maple syrup, lemon zest and juice into a heavy based saucepan
Over a low-medium heat, gently bubble for 10 minutes till the fruit is very mushy, stirring frequently
Add the chia seeds and bubble for a further 5 minutes, again stirring frequently then set aside to cool

Told you it was easy 🙂

Hello there!  I’m Sam, former Michelin star pastry chef and now your go-to vegan foodie on a mission to make plant-based eating a deliciously easy adventure!  From cozy comfort foods to vibrant salads and decadent desserts, there’s something for everyone in my kitchen.

Whether you’re cooking for one or for a houseful I believe food doesn’t have to be complicated to be full of FLAVOUR and I want to show you how.  I’ve been a rigorous meal planner for over a decade whilst embracing seasonal ingredients (because that’s where the real flavour is!)

I’m also a dedicated dog mum to Nooch and Baxter and enjoy cooking them homemade treats (many of which are posted here) when I’m not screaming at the tennis or devouring fantasy fiction.

All things autumn - warming soups, savoury bakes and delicious sweet treats!
