This strawberry jam is made with no pectin. Honey and strawberries is all you need.

If you want a recipe that doesn’t have added pectin this recipe fits the bill.

Ways To Use Strawberry Jam

  • Top your pancakes or waffles with a dollop of Jam.
  • Drizzle over a bowl of ice cream.
  • Use as filling for cupcakes or muffins.

Another great idea is to give Jam as a gift. Whether it be for holidays, birthday, or even a welcome gift, jam is always a great idea.

Can You Freeze Strawberry Jam

You can freeze strawberry jam! If you want you can even freeze it in your mason jars. Just ensure you leave room at the top as it will expand as it freezes.

Then when you are ready to use it just place in the fridge to thaw the night before.

Can I Use Frozen Strawberries For Instant Pot Strawberry Jam

You can use frozen strawberries for Instant Pot jam. If they are whole and not cut up I would add an extra minute to cook time to ensure it fully cooks.

Can I Double or Triple The Strawberry Jam Recipe

Depending on the size of your Instant will determine the answer. This recipe can be doubled or tripled just make sure you do not give over the max fill line!

Why Didn’t My Jam Set Up

Sometimes you will find your jam won’t fully setup. This could be a handful of issues.

One it could have been you didn’t cook it long enough. Secondly sometimes strawberries don’t have enjoy natural sugars so it makes it harder.

What you can do is take your jam and place in the fridge overnight. See if in the morning it had set up more.

If not you might want to cook it a bit more, you could even do this on the stovetop. This usually does the trick!

How Do You Make Strawberry Jam Thicker

  • One option is to give your jam time. Sometimes letting it set up in the fridge overnight is all it takes!
  • Cooking your jam longer can help to give you that thicker textured jam you are hoping for.
  • Also adding in some chia seeds is a great way to add nutrients and thicken your jam.

Does Jam Go Bad

Like all things jam can go bad. This particular strawberry jam can be stored in the fridge for 5-7 days.

Is there something that you could do to make these sugar free? My husband is a diabetic, and I'm concerned about the honey.:) Kids are cutting strawberries even now, and we are very excited about making this in our new instant pot! Thanks for the recipe!
