Instant Pot Blueberry Jam


Ever tried making your own jam? I did, and it changed my mornings! Today, I'm sharing my Instant Pot Blueberry Jam recipe. It's easy, quick, and oh-so-tasty. Perfect for when you're craving something sweet but homemade. Trust me, once you try this, you won't go back to store-bought.

Why This Recipe Works

What's great about this recipe is how simple it is. You don't need any fancy equipment or skills. Just an Instant Pot and a few ingredients. This method cuts down the cooking time massively compared to traditional stove-top recipes. Plus, it's pretty hands-off, so you can go about your day while the Instant Pot does its thing.

Another reason to love this jam is its versatility. You can adjust the sweetness, play with flavors, or even mix in other fruits. It's all about making it your own. And since you're controlling the ingredients, you can keep it as natural as you like. No preservatives, no weird additives, just pure, blueberry goodness.


Blueberries: Fresh or frozen work well. They're the star, full of antioxidants. You can also use acai berry to make a delicious acai berry jam. Same cooking instructions.

Sugar: Adjust to your taste. You can reduce it or substitute it with honey for a healthier twist.

Lemon Juice: Adds a nice zing and helps the jam set. Fresh is best.

Pectin: This natural setting agent gives your jam the perfect consistency. Agar agar is a good vegan substitute.

Water: Just a bit, to help everything blend smoothly.

  • If using frozen blueberries, no need to thaw them first.
  • Keep a clean spoon handy to skim off any foam that forms on top.
  • For a smoother jam, mash the blueberries before cooking.
  • You can adjust the cooking time if you prefer your jam thicker or thinner.
  • Sterilize your jars before filling to keep the jam fresh longer.

How to Serve

This blueberry jam is a real treat. It’s perfect on a slice of toast for breakfast, but let's get creative. First, swirl it into your morning yogurt or oatmeal for a burst of flavor. It's a simple way to upgrade your breakfast.

For something a bit more indulgent, try spooning it over vanilla ice cream. The contrast of warm jam and cold ice cream is unbeatable. Hosting a brunch? Mix it into your cocktail for a fruity twist. A blueberry jam mimosa or a gin cocktail with a spoonful of jam will impress your guests for sure.

This Instant Pot Blueberry Jam also works great with a fresh bread or Cake Flour Pancakes.
