  • 2 lbs strawberries cleaned hulled, and quartered
  • 1 - 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch
  • 3 tbsp water


  1. Clean and prepare strawberries and put into a large bowl. Add the sugar and lemon juice and let set for 10-30 minutes. The longer you let them set the better they will be.

  2. After they have set and juices have formed, add to the Instant Pot. Cook on high pressure for 1 minute. It takes about 10 mins for the Instant Pot to heat up and build pressure.

  3. Allow a natural release until the pin drops and you can open the lid - about 20 mins.

  4. Combine cornstarch and water and stir well to mix.

  5. Remove the lid and stir as you slowly pour the cornstarch/water mixture into the strawberries..

  6. Turn the Instant Pot on “Sauté” and bring to a boil for about 3 minutes. Allow the mixture to thicken. 

  7. Turn off Instant Pot and pour jam into a container. Keep refrigerated in an airtight container or jar.
