Instant pot peach jam is easy to make using fresh, ripe, sweet and juicy peach, lemon juice and sugar at home without using pectin! This recipe works for making instant pot nectarine jam without pectin as well. If you want to make nectarine jam, just replace the peaches with ripe nectarines in the recipe.

As I already mentioned in the blog post and recipe card, this instant pot peach jam recipe can be used to make instant pot nectarine jam as well using ripe nectarines. I have tried both peaches and nectarines (I didn't peel the nectarines and it worked as well) in this same recipe and both fruits worked well.
Why the fruits are cooked for ten to twelve minutes in this instant pot peach jam recipe?
Though peaches and nectarines usually cook fast, cooking for more time as called in this jam recipe (10 to 12 minutes) will make them very soft, easy to mash and also the time you need to simmer the jam will significantly reduce.
