Substitution Options

Peaches:  Pineapple is another good jam option

Habanero: Any spicy pepper can be used instead of a habanero.  The quantity needed will vary based on level of spice of chosen pepper.

Lemon Juice: Orange juice can be used in place.  This can be left out but I do love the brightness that citrus brings.

Chia Seeds: Gelatin or Agar powder can be used instead but the mixture will need to simmer longer and the jam will need to set overnight.  Using gelatin may also result in it not being vegan.  

Coconut Sugar: Honey or maple syrup can be used in place of the coconut sugar.  If using honey, this recipe will no longer be vegan.  Regular granular sugar can also be used in place.  

Fun Fact! 

Chia seeds are a superfood.  They have been consumed for thousands of years and the word “chia” translates in Mayan to “strength”.  A serving of chia seeds has 12 carbohydrates, of those, 11 are fiber.  This incredibly high fiber to carb ratio is what allows chia seeds to Absorb liquid.  They can absorb 10-12 times their weight in water – ya for jam making!  (Source)

Nutritional Information is an estimate and for informational purposes only.
*Note: Additional substitution information can be found above in the substitution section of this post.
  • Any pepper can be used, but may change the flavor.  The spice can also be omitted, it will not affect the texture
  • To amp up the heat, sauté the habanero with the sugar mixture!  (Warning it will be spicy!). For less heat use a jalapeño or Fresno chili.  
  • The fruit can be blended with the chia seeds and liquid mixture and result in a more mashed texture.
  • Other fruit can be used, but it seems to be best to stick with a fruit that has a stiffer makeup (for example - mango and banana do not make the best jam, in my opinion)
