Refined Sugar-Free Plum Jam (No Pectin)
Learn how to make refined sugar free plum jam with chia seeds. This homemade plum jam is naturally sweetened and is super easy, ready in around 10-15 minutes.
Servings: 1 Jar
- 2 cups Plum chopped
- ½ small Lemon juiced
- 2 tablespoon Chia seed
- 2 tablespoon Maple syrup
Over medium heat in a saucepan, add plums, lemon and maple syrup, bring to the boil and turn the heat down slightly allowing plums to simmer, reduce and soften for approx. 10-15 minutes.
2 cups Plum, ½ small Lemon, 2 tablespoon Maple syrup
Add chia seeds, stir through for a minute and then turn the heat off. Allow the plum jam to thicken by cooling down at room temperature. Store in an airtight jar in the fridge and use as needed.
2 tablespoon Chia seed
Plums should be chopped into small pieces
Ensure the fruit doesn’t burn whilst cooking
This sugar-free plum jam can be left chunky or mashed up
The consistency will thicken as this jam cools down due to the gel released from the chia seeds. Take your spatula and draw a line down the center of the saucepan, it should come together slowly when cool.
Once completely cool, refrigerate in a sterilized air-tight jar (I like recycling glass jars) for approx. 5-10 days
This plum jam is perfect on scones, bread, pancakes, biscuits, cookies, part of a grazing board, and more. I sometimes like to mix it up with my Lebanese rice pudding.
