Gather ingredients

To make the jam: Combine the strawberries, water, chia, and vanilla in a medium pot. 
Cover and bring to a simmer over low heat. Simmer for about 5-7 minutes, until strawberries start to break down. 
Meanwhile, peel and dice the mango into bite-sized pieces. 
Once the strawberries start to break down, turn off the heat. 
Use a spoon to squish the strawberries into a smoother, jam-like consistency. 
Add the diced mango and stir to combine. 

Jam will get thicker after it sits for a while. 

Serve chilled or warm slightly.

CHef's Tips: You can also use frozen mango chunks for an even easier recipe. This is a great recipe to give as a gift for party host, holiday exchanges, or just as a nice gesture.
