PB&J. I’m sure that everyone has had Peanut Butter & Jam at one point or another in their life. Some of us still do. I’m sure everyone keeps a jar of their favorite peanut bar in their pantry at all times.

But what about jam? I’m sure some of you do but not everyone is well prepared for when the mood strikes you. No worries, I got you covered with this Mixed Berry Chia Seed Jam.

The thickening agent for this jam is chia seeds. The nice thing about chia seeds is that there is no gluten or GMOs to worry about. Additionally, you will benefit from the added nutrition without altering the flavor of the jam.

How to Seal Mason Jars

  • Using a ladle, fill sterilized mason jars leaving about 1/2 inch of headspace.
  • Remove any air bubbles by inserting a flexible spatula down the sides of the jars. Adjust headspace if necessary.
  • Wipe jar rims, place lids on jar and screw on bands finger tight.
  • Place jars in a large pot of boiling water for 20 minutes. Move jars to a cooling rack and let cool until the lids “pop”. Do not tighten bands. Let jars cool for at least 4 hours. Test seal by pressing the center of the lid. It should not give. If it makes a popping sound, it has NOT been sealed.
