Peach and Chia Seed Jam


2 lbs. peaches or fruit of your choice - Diced

1/4 pure maple syrup, honey or agave nectar

4 Tblsp. Chia Seeds

1/2 Cup Orange Juice

1/2 Cup Water


Take the pit out of the peaces and dice. Add water, orange juice, syrup, nectar or honey and chia seeds to a large pot. Cover with a lid and cook over low heat for 20-30 min. or until peaches are very soft. Stir several times during the cooking process. Blend peaches until almost smooth. 

Put canning jars and lids into simmering water for 10 min. Remove jars and add peaches. Do not fill to top, leave about half an inch. Tighten lids to jars. Put jars upright into water that is at a low boil. Make sure water covers the top of the lid by 1". Cover and cook for 10 min. Remove from water and set for 12 hours. Lids should seal tightly. 

I spread it on bread, use it over french toast and crepes. You can add jalapeños and cilantro for a great tasting sauce over chicken. I'm tempted to just eat it out of the jar with a spoon!
