  • 4 cups fresh peaches, skins removed, chopped or sliced (use frozen peaches, if desired)
  • 3 tablespoons honey (add one extra tablespoon if you enjoy a sweeter jam) or other vegan honey substitute (maple syrup or agave nectar also work)
  • 5 teaspoons chia seeds


  • Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat and add the chopped peaches. Add the honey and place on the stove over medium heat.
  • As the peaches begin to soften slightly over the heat, stir them around in their juices and the honey.
  • Once the peaches have softened to the point that they're starting to fall apart, add the chia seeds and stir them in well. The chia seeds will help the jam achieve a gelatinous texture while also adding fibre, protein and healthy Omega-3 fats.
  • Let the mixture come to a slow boil, stirring almost continually. Use a potato masher or fork to break up the fruit. if necessary.
  • Continue stirring the mixture over low heat for about 15-20 minutes, or until a gelatinous texture is reached, and then remove the pan from the stove.
  • Pour the jam into a large mason jar and allow it to cool, covered, at room temperature for half an hour before placing it in the fridge to cool completely (for 2 hours, or overnight).
  • Enjoy on toast, gluten-free crackers or scones, over yogurt or even ice cream.


This jam keeps for up to two weeks in the fridge and up to 2 months in the freezer. This jam is not shelf stable.
This recipe makes about 2 cups of jam (one large jar).
