Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I Use Fresh or Frozen Strawberries?
This recipe will work with either frozen or fresh strawberries. The cooking time will stay the same.
Using Frozen Strawberries: If your frozen strawberries are whole frozen strawberries, you may have to blend at the end, but I find that if you mix it well after the strawberries are done, pressure cook. They literally melt away, so there is no need for any more mixing or using an immersion blender.
Using Other Fruits: This recipe will work the same with any berries, I have switched the strawberries out for blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries, and the recipe will be the same. One of my favorite recipes for Instant Pot Jam is actually the frozen mixed berry medley. It has a great flavor and is truly delicious.
Can I Double The Recipe?
This recipe will work perfectly with any size. I have doubled and tripled the number of berries and made a wonderful batch of jam.
The cooking time will remain the same. There is no need to increase the time; the berries will come out perfect, using the same time.
How To Make Instant Pot Strawberry Jam Sugar-Free
This is very common for anyone who reads my website and is on a diabetic diet. I have not made this recipe, but readers have told me that they have reduced the sugar and have replaced the granulated sugar with a sugar substitute.
Depending on your diet, the other option would be to substitute the sugar for honey, which is a great natural substitute.
How To Can Jam Using The Instapot
Since the USDA has come out and has started the Instant Pot is not safe for home canning because this recipe is so easy to make. I usually only make a batch at a time.
If you would like to can it, I would suggest using a regular canning method, as the Instant Pot is not safe to can.
But this jam will stay perfectly fine in the refrigerator for about 2 to 3 weeks. Just keep it in a sealed jar. This jam also does amazingly well in the freezer, so make a huge batch when it’s strawberry season, and it will freeze for about a year.
How To Thicken The Strawberry Jam
I wanted to point out that this jam will not be as thick as the regular jam you purchase. Since we do not use any pectin in the jam, I thickened it with a cornstarch slurry. It will harden somewhat as the jam is refrigerated.
But if you want to make it with pectin, follow the directions on the pectin label.
How To Use Strawberry Jam
