Fresh Plum Jam

Tis the season for fresh plums!  We have a neighbor with an abundance of fruits and veggies we love to buy from!  Today was their first harvest of the plum trees.  YAY!!

With starting the Sane Challenge in a day, what a better prep item to have on hand then Plum Jam!! Delicious on a slice of sprouted grain toast for breakfast or top some cottage cheese with it for a easy sweet snack.

Ingredients?  Plums and Chia Seeds

It's as easy as cutting up the plums, (about 3 cups diced) and adding them to the sauce pan with about 1/4 Cup of water. Bring to boil, cover and lower heat. Let simmer about 15 minutes.  Stirring frequently. 

After 15 minutes, turn the heat off, take lid off and let cool a bit.   Then add 2 tablespoons of Chia seeds. Mix it up really good and let it sit until almost cool.  

Throw the mixture in the food processor for a few turns to make a chunky jam or really let it spin for a smoother jam. 

You could add a little honey for a sweeter jam, but these plums were perfect and we didn't need to add anything!!
