Quick and Easy Peach Chia Jam

The Farmer’s Market is overflowing with summer fruit. And that usually means that I purchase way more than I can eat in a week. With the gorgeous bounty before me, I seem to have very little self control! But I have found a quick and easy way to use leftover fruit. Chia Jam!

I first learned about chia jam through Om Nom Ally. She has lovely recipes for Chia Strawberry Jam and Blood Plum Jam. So when I couldn’t eat my way through this delicious bag of fresh Georgia peaches, I knew just what to do.

Make Chia Peach Jam! This jam is delicious spread on crackers, gluten-free bread, drizzled over a fruit salad, or swirled into your favorite smoothie.

Chia Peach Jam

Makes about 1 1/2 cups

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups roughly chopped peaches
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1-2 tablespoons of optional sweetener: maple syrup, agave nectar, honey

Instructions:

  1. Place chopped peaches and sweetener of your choice in the Vitamix or high-powered blender, and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into a small bowl and stir in chia seeds by hand.
  3. Pour jam into a pint jar, cover, and place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to thicken.
  4. This jam will last about a week in the refrigerator, but I’ll bet it will be gone before then!
