Goji Berry Jam

Soak 1/3 C of dried goji berries in just enough water to cover them, for about 30 minutes or until they are plump and soft. Strain this and add 1 tsp. of lemon juice, one tsp. of agave and a very small pinch of salt. Smash this all together with a mortar and pestle, or chop up with a knife. Spread it on manna bread or flax seed crackers with almond butter for a super yummy treat. You an also put this mixture in smoothies or pour it over raw ice cream.
