Goji Berry Jam
Agar agar is a tasteless seaweed found in health food stores and Asian markets that acts as a wonderful natural (vegetarian) gelling agent similar to gelatin. If a raw recipe is desired, 2 Tbsp of chia seeds could be added in the place of the agar, leave out the cooking, and simply allow the recipe to stand for about an hour before serving.
In a small bowl or cup, mix all the ingredients together except for the whole goji berries. Pour into a saucepan and gently bring to a boil, simmering for about one minute. Transfer the mixture back into the bowl and stir in the goji berries. (If a smoother jam is desired, blend the mixture in a blender for a moment to break the berries into large chunks, or simply leave as whole berries). Place mixture in the refrigerator for a minimum of an hour - allowing the agar to set and the goji berries to plump up. Will keep in a sealed jar for about 2 weeks.
