This Healthier Instant Pot Strawberry Jam doesn't get any easier! It only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish!
This recipe is SO easy and so fast! The strawberries cook for literally one minute, and if you include the time needed to pressurize and de-pressurize the pot, you’re still looking at under 30 minutes of work for homemade jam! 30 minutes? YES PLEASE!
The second thing I love about this recipe is how simple the ingredient list is. This strawberry jam is made with strawberries, fresh orange juice, and a bit of sugar. It is perfect for a gift for neighbors or just to share with your family!
Instant Pot Strawberry Jam Ingredients:
1 lb. strawberries
1/8 cup sugar
1 orangeThe thing I love about this recipe is that it is healthier than most jams! Most jams call for 1-2 cups of sugar per pound of strawberries! This is only 1/8 cup! I feel a lot better feeding my kids this because I know exactly what is in it!

Rinse your strawberries and remove the greens. Slice the strawberries in pieces and place them in the bottom of the pot.
Sprinkle the sugar over the top of the halved strawberries and allow them to sit for 10 minutes or so. The sugar will release the juices from the strawberries, which is necessary for the Instant Pot method to work. (so don't stress if you think these won't be enough liquid!)
Use a reamer or juicer to juice the orange, then pour 1 ounce of the fresh orange juice over the strawberries and sugar.
Lock the lid of your Instant Pot, then select the “Manual” option. Cook on high pressure for 1 minute, then wait 15 minutes after the cooking is done for the pressure to release naturally.
The strawberries will have cooked down into a thicker type sauce.
Crush the strawberries with potato smasher or blend them in a blender.
Store in an airtight container in your refrigerator, and spread it on your sandwich, or just eat it off the spoon!
