Ingredients

Measuring cup used 1 cup = 250 ml

  • 1 pound fresh strawberries (about 4 cups)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar or ½ cup of erythritol (for keto version) or any sweetener
  • 2 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Instructions

Instant Pot Method:

  • Wash, hull, and slice the strawberries into halves.
  • Add the strawberries ,sugar and lemon juice to the Instant Pot and stir well.Close the lid and let them sit for at-least 30 minutes, this process helps to release juices from strawberries.
  • After 30 minutes,Set the pot to MANUAL/PRESSURE COOK (High Pressure) and set timer to 1 minute.
  • When the instant pot beeps, let the pressure release naturally. Open the lid.
  • Use a potato masher or immersion blender to puree the fruit until the desired consistency.(I kept mine chunky).
  • Select the SAUTE mode and mix in the chia seeds.
  • Bring the mixture to boil for about 5 minutes while stirring continuously until jam reaches required gel like consistency.The jam also will continue to thicken as it cools.
  • Once the jam has cooled to room temperature, transfer it to a jar. Yields one 16-Ounces jar of jam.

Stovetop Pot Method:

  • Wash, hull, and slice the strawberries into halves.
  • In a saucepan, combine strawberries ,sugar and lemon juice.Close the lid and let them sit for at-least 30 minutes, this process helps to release juices from strawberries.
  • Simmer the mixture on medium low flame while stirring frequently, until the berries break down and become liquidy. This should take about 8-10 minutes.
  • Use a potato masher or immersion blender to puree the fruit until the desired consistency.(I kept mine chunky).
  • Mix in the chia seeds and boil for another 1-2 minutes.The jam also will continue to thicken as it cools.
  • Once the jam has cooled to room temperature, transfer it to a jar.

Notes

I have prepared this dish in my electric pressure cooker, Instant Pot DUO60 6 QT.
  • You can make this jam with any berries of your choice like strawberry ,blueberries, raspberries ,blackberries or mixture of all.
  • You can reduce the sugar if the berries are naturally very sweet.Also you can add maple syrup or honey instead of sugar.
  • If you dont have chia seeds skip it,chia seeds are added to thicken the jam as well it is very healthy and nutritious.
