Jamming with Chia!

Earlier in the summer I made some beautiful strawberry jam using natural pectin ( and then I found this recipe from Angela Liddon's Oh She Glows blog. IT'S THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD! Using chia as a thickener, this jam couldn't be easier. Adding a little maple syrup for sweetener, and the goodness of chia as a binder, we can eat this jam knowing it's not only delicious, it's also full of natural goodness.

I started with blueberry jam which turned out beautifully. This weekend I made peach. I will admit, it's not as attractive as the blueberry and maybe next time I might sweeten with a touch of honey since the maple syrup darkened it a little. I may also try it using no sweetener at all and see if this affects the thickening of the jam.

I have ordered some coronation grapes this week so can't wait to make my next batch. Toast never tasted so good!
