Why strawberries?

Strawberries are one of the most favorite fruits in the world. I am sure the strawberries are in the top five fruits. The strawberries are well known for their color and delicately sweet taste. They are suitable for jams, you can use them in different desserts, and consume them raw.

Can I use frozen strawberries?

Yes, you can use frozen strawberries for this Instant Pot jam.

This recipe calls for fresh strawberries, but if you have frozen ones, they will work too. Before you use the frozen strawberries, thaw them overnight in a fridge.

What else can be added?

This is a basic recipe, but to enhance flavor, you can add vanilla extract at the end of cooking.

How to improve consistency?

The cooked strawberries are very soft and you can leave the jam as it is.

The strawberries will basically fall apart. Still, if you want you can mash the strawberries with a whisk or puree using an immersion blender.

How to make strawberry jam

Gather your ingredients:

Add strawberries, lemon juice and sugar to the Instant Pot. Let the strawberries rest for 10 minutes. This will ensure the sugar extracts more strawberry juice.

Lock the lid into place. Cook on High pressure for 1 minute.

Once done, Let the pressure come down naturally for 15 minutes and then do a quick release.

Combine starch and water and stir well.

Whisk the cornstarch into the jam. Select saute and cook until thickened.

Let it cool and serve.

  1. When doubling or tripling does anything change such as cooking time,amount of corn starch etc. ?

    1. Sure! You can use a sugar baking substitute, they usually have instructions on how much to use in place of the sugar in a recipe.

    1. Yes, you can easily double the recipe. Possibly triple, as long as it fits under the max fill line of your Instant Pot!

    1. Yes, you can! It should last a couple months in the freezer. Just be sure to transfer it to a plastic container instead of a glass jar so they glass doesn't break.

  2. Don't you need at least a cup of water/liquid to pressure cook in the instapot? There is no significant volume of liquid in this recipe. Thank you.

    1. Usually you need at least 1/2 cup but this liquid can come from the food too. If you have juicy strawberries, or frozen strawberries, you should have enough liquid. If your strawberries are underripe you may want to add a little more water (and those might not make the best jam anyway!)

  3. Why is it left in the pot for 10 mins before the pot is closed ? Is it left sitting in the pot or what function do you use

    1. He doesn't say how much water. You say mix the water with the "cornflour." Is that the same as cornstarch? Thank you.

  4. Could you possibly use pectin in place of cornstarch to thicken? Do you think recipe could be doubled without a problem? I also think 'm going to try this with blueberries and raspberries. Most store bought jam uses high fructose syrup!
