2 Ingredient Instant Pot Blueberry Jam
One of my boy’s favorite fruits is blueberries. I love being able to make fresh blueberry jam for them. These are the moments that make owning an instant pot priceless.
Because blueberries are already stemmed, it makes it one of the easiest berries to make jam out of. No real prep required, just wash, dump, turn on and wait for that release in pressure. Smooth, straightforward, with an incredible result.
How Long Does it Take for Blueberry Jam to Set
Generally, you want to give the jam a 24-48 hour window for it to set up. Now you can serve up the jam right after you pull from the Instant pot if you want, sometimes it can just take time for it to reach full thickness.
How to Store Your Blueberry Jam
I like to place it in glass jars and seal the lid on. Then store in the refrigerator until we are ready to eat it. You can also tie a ribbon onto the jar and hand it out to friends and family as a gift as well!
Do Blueberries have Pectin
Yes, blueberries naturally have a lot of pectin. That is why you will find this jam sets up rather well on its own without needing added ingredients.
How Long Does Blueberry Jam Last
If you choose to can your jam; you can expect it to last up to 2 years. This means you can, with a hot water bath, and then store in a pantry that is cool and dry. Once you open the jam, it can last up to three months opened in the fridge.
How to Thicken Blueberry Jam
If your jam isn’t thick enough for your liking always add in some chia seeds. This is an excellent thickener for your jam that will also add more health benefits to your tasty jam! I like the jam as it is, but you can always thicken it to fit your preference.
How Do You Seal Jam Jars Without A Canner
Spoon your jam into your sterilized hot jars. Then add a jar lid, and place the top on, and screw on your band and then add your jar to boiling water. Let it boil for 10 minutes. Remove the jars carefully, and listen to hear that classic “pop” sound to make sure the jar has sealed.
This Instant Pot blueberry jam truly is a breeze to make. Once you make it for yourself, you won’t want to buy jam again!
If you plan on keeping your jam for a while, you will want to practice safe canning methods. Since I am not a experienced canner, I do recommend that you read up on Home Canning: Keep Your Family Safe!
