I recently posted a strawberry chia pudding recipe and have mentioned that I love including chia seeds in my food regularly. I add them to my overnight oats, pancake mix etc. Apart from these options, this Pineapple Chia Jam is another delicious and wonderful option because it’s so easy to prepare and can be added to quite a few breakfast recipes. I love adding jam to a bowl of Greek yogurt, on top of my freshly made bread or to my jar of oatmeal. I also love having it with Rotis. Try it if you haven’t had this combination.

Homemade Jam

The reason I started making jam at home is that I have no idea what goes into a storebought jam bottle. Every time I look at the ingredients list, I get a mini heart attack. Sometimes it’s just not possible to avoid store bought food but we can try!

A lot of people may think making jam is a very tough job. Today, I am going to show how easy it is to make this Pineapple Chia Jam in Instant Pot very easily. A lot better than the store-bought ones, loaded with sugar. And of course. We are skipping loads of preservatives that are added in a store-bought jam. If you don’t have pineapple in hand, worry not. Replace with any other fruit of your choice.

This Pineapple Chia Jam in Instant Pot is sweetened with Maple Syrup. A friend of mine gifted me a huge bottle of Maple Syrup purchased from a local farm. Tastes so good! If you don’t have maple syrup, you can use good quality honey in its place.

Tips

Use well ripened pineapple for this Pineapple Chia Jam.

Lemon Juice is not just for the flavour. The pH level plays a role in helping the jam set without pectin. So, don’t skip it. 

I like my jam with some texture, but if you like to have a smooth consistency, you can blend the mixture until smooth.

Always store the jam in a moisture free airtight container.

Cook until you reach the right consistency.

You can use honey or sugar in place of maple syrup. Adjust the quantity according to the sweetness of the fruit.

Use any other fruit in place of pineapple.
