Growing up peanut butter and jam on toast was a pretty common breakfast food, but I do not remember the last time I actually bought jam. It is high in sugar and too sweet for my liking. I recall seeing different recipes on how to make your own jam without all the sugar and cooking involved. As much as I like to make my own food, the least amount of time involved the better.

This recipe is so simple and easy. I personally think it tastes way better than any store bought jam you will find. I usually spread it on raw or sprouted bread and crackers and I have even been known to just eat it straight with a spoon. It makes for a nice pudding.

What is your favorite jam flavor?

    How did you read my mind and know that I was thinking just this past weekend of learning to make my own fruit preserves? I’ve never heard of chia seeds, but this recipe looks like a good one to try. Thanks!

    This looks really good! I have wanted to make my own for a long time, as I am concerned about what my children are eating. Thanks so much for sharing with “Try a New Recipe Tuesday!” I look forward to seeing what you share this week. :-)

    Could the chia be substituted with flax? The recipe sounds great, but we cant use chia.

    • Good Girl Gone Green March 20, 2013 at 2:32 pm #

      Hi Karla, I have not tried it with flax seeds. But flax seeds do “plump” up, not as much as chia though. You could maybe test a small batch to see how you like it. If it works out please let me know so I can tell my readers! Thank you.
