Move over Berry Cherry Chia Seed Jam there’s a new favourite in town! If you remember well I did say there would be more chia seed jams in the making. Well I am a woman of my word. It’s amazing what wonderful things can happen when you eat in season! I absolutely love berries, I could eat them all year round but I will be the first to admit that the strawberries I can buy in September don’t come anywhere close in flavour to ‘in season’ strawberries. Eating in season has forced me to branch out and explore new foods that I would just otherwise bypass. My lovely neighbour gifted me with about 1 kilo of peaches last week and I knew I had to find a way to preserve them.

Beautiful peaches ready for jam making. With just a few added ingredients you will have a delicious jam you can enjoy all summer long!

There was no way we would be able to eat them all before they went bad. I decided on a peach chia seed jam but felt that the peaches would need a bit of help with some extra flavour. Enter the  homemade pumpkin spice mix I begged you to get ready earlier this week. This second chia seed jam is definitely a keeper! Please give it a try and let me know what you think in the comment section below.

    Hi Krystal,
    Boy this sounds delicious and yet so simple to make. Peaches were always one of my favorite jams when I was a child, but this is even better than what my Mother made with the chia seeds and the loads of protein and other health benefits. Thanks for sharing on Real Food Fridays. Pinned.

    So fun! We pick up a couple bushels of peaches from our local farmer around August and I can’t wait! They are so yummy! I have never made peach jam before but I bet it would be a big hit here! Thank you!

    How long does chia jam usually stay fresh for in the fridge? I’ve been dieing to make a new recipe, but I don’t want it to spoil to soon! (I can always freeze it, but just curious!)
