Can sugar be used in place of Agave?
Bob\'s Red Mill March 25, 2013
You can use granulated sugar in place of agave syrup in this recipe. You may want to increase the amount of sugar to 1/3 cup.

What's the nutritional info/serving size and how long does this keep for?
Bob's Red Mill May 6, 2013
The nutritional information can be found at the bottom of the page. If you are having trouble viewing it, try clearing the cache on your internet browser and refreshing the page. This jam will last for one month, covered, in the refrigerator.

Great recipe. The sweetness was just right and the texture was very nice. I am going to try other fruits like ripe peaches when they are in season.
Basia June 19, 2013
I just made this yesterday, I don't think I will every buy jam in the jar again. The flavor and texture are AMAZING!
Jennifer July 10, 2013
Can this be properly canned and stored for a longer period of time? It's been suggested jam made with chia seed will keep in the freezer as any freezer jam will but I don't have freezer space for that.

Great recipe! I used raspberries instead. My children loved this jam!
Carol January 12, 2014
I've made this with blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Each was delicious; strawberry jam was awesome. I am going to try apple, adding a little cinnamon. I suggest tasting the jam before adding the vanilla extract; depending on your taste buds, you may not need to add it.

I made this last night. It is wonderful! I've recently changed my lifestyle. So I'm always looking for healthier alternatives. My family tried this also. It was a hit! I know what I'll be making from now on!

Why is this recipe labeled as gluten free when its using chia seeds that could be contaminated with wheat?
Bob's Red Mill June 6, 2014
Thank you for pointing this out. This recipe is considered wheat free, but not gluten free. The listing will be corrected.

Loved it! Can frozen fruit be used? How does it work for freezer jam?
Bob's Red Mill June 10, 2014
You may use this recipe to create a freezer jam. Unfortunately, we have not tested our Blueberry Chia Jam Recipe with frozen fruit. If wanting to try this recipe with frozen fruit, I recommend defrosting the fruit before use as the excess liquid could effect the recipe ratios.

Can I replace the agave syrup with maple syrup?
Bob's Red Mill July 2, 2014
We have not tested our Blueberry Chia Jam with maple syrup replacing the agave called for in this recipe. Generally, maple syrup and agave can replace each other 1 for 1. Keep in mind that this exchange will change the flavor of the finished product.
Pauline July 3, 2014
I just made the blueberry jam..
can I put this jam in the freezer? And also how long can I keep it in the freezer.?
I will not buy jam in the store anymore.
The reason for my question is I would like to make and freeze the jam when the fruit is in season.
Bob's Red Mill July 7, 2014
You may store the Blueberry Chia Jam in the freezer. Freezer jams can be stored this way for up to 1 year.
Amy July 7, 2014
just made this with apricots from our trees! added cinnamon and a little allspice. Delicious!
Christina July 23, 2014
Loved this! I used organic honey instead of agave nectar and texture was fine. I also used frozen blueberries and only thawed them for about 5 minutes. Will try other fruits.
Bob's Red Mill July 29, 2014
Yes, you may can the Blueberry Chia Jam. To do so, I recommend using a basic water bath method.
kelly July 27, 2014
Excellent recipe. Can it be canned in Mason jars?
John July 31, 2014
This is a great recipe. So easy to make, healthy and delicious. I made 2 batches and my 9 year old son loves it. I plan on canning some soon too.
Mel August 20, 2014
Wondering if you can use ground chia seeds for this recipe? My kids aren't keen on seeing the seeds in the jam.
Bob's Red Mill August 21, 2014
Yes, you may use ground chia seed in the Blueberry Chia Jam recipe. When doing so, you may find that you need to increase the amount of chia seeds used. As we have not tested this method, we do not have exact measurements.
