I know it’s almost fall, but I am so not ready for it. I actually love fall, but here in Wisconsin fall isn’t a season; it’s the opening act for winter. Many of my family members and friends are heading off to college and high school this week, and I am starting to smell the crispness of fall in the air. Last week was my “last hurrah of summer” week and I celebrated an awesome summer by making peach chia jam and going rock climbing!
This might be the last truly “summer-y” recipe of the season, but make a batch of peach chia jam now to store in the fridge or freeze for school lunches!
I’ve never made chia jam before this, and I’m not sure why I didn’t; it’s so incredibly easy and delicious! No pectin or sugar needed; and this recipe took me 20 minutes from start to finish!
The peach chia jam is pictured spread on the Sandwich Bread from my upcoming cookbook Paleo Mug Muffins, which releases September 1, 2015!!!!! Which is tomorrow! So excited!!
