Instant pot jam recipes features a collection of small batch fruit jam recipes including peach jam, plum jam, mango jam, strawberry jam, blueberry jam etc. These jams are easy to make in the instant pot and are delicious. The instant pot jams are not meant for canning, but they are small quantity jams which you can store in dry, clean airtight glass jars and store in refrigerator for a couple of weeks. The instant pot jams uses no pectin, rather it uses lemon juice (and also cornstarch in some recipes) to thicken the jam.
Preparing jam in instant pot is a breeze and its also super fun. I enjoy making small batch fruit jams in my instant pot which I use for breakfast or my kids lunch box. You can use these delicious jams to spread on your morning toast, pancakes, waffles etc or mix with yogurt or enjoy with any food as you desire.
How To Make Fruit Jam In Instant Pot?
You can make use of small batch leftover ripe fruits to make the jams so if there are fruits that are going to be spoiled, make use of them by making jam in the instant pot. You can use flavors like vanilla or cinnamon to flavor your jams, just like I have used the vanilla flavor in the strawberry and blueberry jam recipes listed here.
In the recipes featured here, all the instant pot jams are made without using pectin. Instead we use lemon juice and sugar to thicken the jam. Once you cook in the fruits in the instant pot, its easy to thicken the jam by simmering the contents for another few minutes unlike you make them in the saucepan over stovetop which requires continuous simmering and stirring for much longer time.
In some recipes, it helps to add a little cornstarch mixture to thicken the jam even more faster. Since we do not intend to do the canning, its fine to use the cornstarch to thicken the jam. However if you do have pectin with you, maybe you can also try using the pectin to thicken the fruit jam. If you do that, please let me know in the comments, I like to hear from you!
So far I have used mangoes to make delicious mango jam, ripe peaches to prepare peach jam, red plums for plum jam, blueberries for blueberry jam and strawberries for strawberry honey jam.
As I prepare more fruit jams, I will also add them to the instant pot jam collection.
