Fresh Pineapple Chia Seed Jam
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple (chopped small)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1½ tablespoons chia seeds + 3 tablespoons water
  • **Optional - 3 or 4 Peppadew peppers or jalapenos if making the pepper jelly variation**
  1. Soak chia seeds in the 3 tablespoons of water and set aside to gel, stirring after 10 minutes.
  2. Put chopped pineapple in food processor just for a few pulses to get rid of the big chunks.
  3. Place pulsed pineapple, honey and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  4. Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low. Continue to cook for about 30 minutes until the liquid has almost completely evaporated and the pineapple is soft. Add water as necessary, based on how juicy your pineapple is to start with. The pineapple will be broken down and should look like it's starting to gel.
  5. Remove from heat and stir in your chia seed gel stirring constantly for a few minutes. The chia seeds will try to crawl up the sides of the pan so stirring helps keep them incorporated into the pineapple.
  6. **Optional: To make pineapple PEPPER jelly, simply add 3 or 4 finely chopped Pepperdew peppers or jalapenos to the pineapple in the last few minutes of cooking, before adding the chia seed. I love pepper jelly spooned on top of cream cheese with some quinoa chips. So good.**
