  • Set a medium saucepan with fruit, over medium heat.
  • When fruit comes to a boil lower heat and simmer fruit for about 5 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Add maple syrup and chia seeds; continue to cook for 5-7 minutes more and stir occasionally. Mash fruit with your spoon as you stir if preferred. I like to leave some fruit unmashed for added texture.
  • Remove from heat and allow jam to sit and thicken for about 10 minutes.
  • To store place in an airtight jam jar or other container, and keep it in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Can also be frozen for up to two months.


  • Frozen fruit would probably work, but I have not tried this. Also, any berries work. Try substituting strawberries and blackberries.
  • Replace maple syrup with honey, if preferred.
