Peach Chia Jam (No Added Sugar)
Have you ever tried making jam in your Instant Pot? This tasty peach chia jam is thickened with nutrient-rich chia seeds and has no added sugar!
Electric pressure cooker
- 4 cups ripe peaches (peeled and diced)
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- ¼ cup chia seeds
In a 6-quart electric pressure cooker, stir together the peaches, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and almond extract.
Close and lock the lid of the pressure cooker. Ensure the valve is set to “sealing,” then select HIGH manual pressure and set the timer for 2 minutes.
Once the cooking time is up, allow the pressure to release naturally for 15 minutes, then quick release the remaining pressure. When the pressure gauge drops, remove the lid and set it aside.
Use an immersion blender to purée the peach mixture right in the pot.
Stir in the chia seeds, then hit Sauté. Select the “low” setting if your pressure cooker gives you the option.
Stir constantly for about 5 minutes or until the jam has reached the consistency you like.
Hit Cancel to turn off the heat, then allow the jam to cool to room temperature before transferring to a jar.
This recipe is for 24 servings of jam. Each serving is 2 tablespoons.
If you don't have any almond extract, just use vanilla extract (2 teaspoons total).
Store the jam in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 6 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before using.
