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.
