Super fresh chia jams made with fresh peaches, blueberries and strawberries to top any of your favourite recipes. YUM!


Ingredients

Scale

Peach Chia seed jam: 

  • 2 cups peaches, chopped into small cubes
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 13 tbsp maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chia seeds

Blueberry Chia seed jam: 

  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 13 tbsp maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chia seeds

Strawberry Chia seed jam: 

  • 2 cups strawberries, stems removed and cut in half
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 13 tbsp maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chia seeds

Instructions

  1. Add fruit to a small saucepan on medium heat
  2. Once it begins to bubble, reduce heat to medium-low letting cook for 10-15 minutes, occasionally stirring with a wooden spoon.
  3. Once the mixture is thickened, add the lemon juice and maple syrup and mix until combined.
  4. Remove from heat and add the chia seeds mixing until combined.
  5. Pour into a jar and let cool to room temperature on the counter, then cover with a lid and place in the fridge.
  6. Let sit for at least an hour before using.

Notes

The peaches will need the least time to cook since they have the least liquid, and the strawberries will need more time since they have more liquid.

Use three separate pans to cook each jam at the same time, or make one after another in the same pan.
