Plum, berry and chia jam sounds great right.. absolutely delicious and not only that it s easy to make too. Chia seeds and spices adds a great flavour too.

I should have posted this plum berry  chia jam while ago when plums were bountiful. surprisingly on a recent supermarket haul, I still could spot good quality plums. I bet they are still juicy and delicious.

So we do have a good excuse to make this delicious rich jam..

Ever since I have started using chia seeds instead of pectin or any other jam setting ingredient, home made jam is common in our breakfast table. along with my homemade rich fruit cake

My boys love them too..and is a great way to add more fruits to you diet.

On a different note, I pestered my 10 year old to write few lines..about Jam.. and not only that I had to bribe him by filling the cart in Amazon..

Very pleased with these words that was put together by him after a fair bit of coaxing and cajoling..

It’s all about JAM…

Crusty bread and delicious jam

Can you imagine any thing better than that !!!

Homemade jam and freshly baked bread

Can you imagine any better spread !!

Add some peanut butter

And you have a whole new relish.

Oh that is truly a bliss and makes my world goes wizz !!

Sweet and tarty with

Berries and fruits

Can you imagine anything better than that !!

Homemade jam

is the best, take my word for it

Give it a try and then

You will

Believe in me !!!

My Mum’s jam is the best

and makes me use my air Guitar

and go  jam jam jam….
