Completely Board Post #19: Chia Seed Jam

Veg-am's Completely Board - Vegan Month of Food 2014

 

Here it is the last day of Vegan MoFo!  Who can believe it went by so quickly.  And, I’m cutting it down to the wire.  This is technically my 20th post since I made an introductory post, but I’m going to try to get one more pinned recipe made and posted today. But first, let’s get on with post #19.

I must have pinned this recipe back when I was thinking about how good chia is for me but was still afraid of it.  Now that chia pudding is one of my favorite things, there is no reason to be afraid of Oh My Veggies’ Chia Seed Jam (vegetarian site, vegan post).

I went with figs as my fruit, but apparently most fruits will work.  I had some frozen figs in the freezer (multiple bags) and decided to try something a bit different from the usual strawberry or peach jam that I’m used to.  It worked like a charm exactly the way the recipe said.  It’s not the most photogenic of jams, but the photo shows you how good the consistency of the jam is.

If you like jam but don’t want to go to all the work of sealing jars, this is definitely the way to go.  It took about 1/2 hour to make and then was left in the refrigerator to finish setting up.  Easy peasy.  I can’t wait to try it with next summer’s fresh blackberries!
