A few years ago a friend and I made a TON of strawberry jam. While it certainly was delicious it took FOREVER and made the biggest mess. I haven't tried making jam since then until I stumbled across a few blogs for Instant Pot jam. Now I'm hooked! When I say it is easy! I mean it is easy! In fact i'm pretty sure you can't mess this up. Plus it's super fast compared to the all day jam session I had before. I followed this blog for the most part but tweaked it a little for my second batched.
Things I did differently:
- added 1/2 cup of sugar instead of a 1/4 cup
- added 1 tbsp of cornstarch instead of 2 tsp.
I found this made the jam sweeter and a little thicker. I also did not mash my strawberries all the way up because I like my jam a little chuncky. Other then those 2 changes I followed her directions exactly and it turned out DELICIOUS! In fact I am packaging several of the jars up to drop off at a few friends front porch this weekend! These 1/2 pint jars paired with one of our meal take cards makes the cutest drop and run gift for your friends!
And if you don't already have an instant pot I highly suggest you grabbing one! They are fantastic and I use mine all the time!
Happy Jam Making!
