Equipment

  • Instant Pot
  • potato masher
  • blender

Ingredients

  • 1 pound strawberries
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 orange

Instructions

  • 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!

Notes

  • This jam will thicken up as it cools down. If you prefer thicker jam, you can add a little pit of pectin into the jam after it's done cooking or even a little bit of cornstarch. This recipe made about 10 ounces of jam - I put mine in 3 4-ounce jars not quite filled to the top. The cooking time does not include the time that it takes to come to pressure and the natural release time. It should take about 30 minutes from start to finish.
