The Basic Chia Gel

Chia gel in a nutshell is hydrating the seeds and they become gelatinous.  To make this concoction, mix 1 oz. of seeds with 1 cup of water and stir to avoid clumping.  As time passes, the results will make about 8 oz. of chia gel.  In 10 to 20 minutes the gel will form.  It’s ready to use or wait a little longer and it will release more nutrients.  This batch can remain refrigerated and used as needed for the next 3 weeks.
