Well, this is August and this is definitely not the official strawberry season. But nature has its own way to shower love. One of my friend’s garden strawberry bushes gave a bountiful of harvest early this month. She has some of those year-round varieties that just keep producing. Here is a good article on growing strawberries. She was generous enough to leave a huge basket of strawberries on my porch. #socialdistancing

Fresh strawberries

I couldn’t think of anything except this pressure cooker strawberry jam when I saw those red, juicy strawberries. Freshly picked, organic berries are perfect as snacks, in salads, and even in drinks. Yay, virgin strawberry margarita lovers. But this quick, sugar-free strawberry jam version is also a good option to store your berries for longer. The best part is you don’t have to spend like an hour to make a perfect instant pot strawberry jam. In fact, my sugar-free version is also a better-for-you option, if watching carbs.

What are the ingredients of instant pot no sugar strawberry jam?

Strawberry jam
  •  Strawberries: Use juicy, ripe, and red strawberries. If you don’t have berries in season, use thawed frozen strawberries.
  • Lemon: The juice of lemon adds a nice tart flavor to the jam. The juice also works with the sugar-free sweetener to give a gel-like consistency.
  • Swerve or Monk Fruit Sweetener: Feel free time use sugar if you want. For a sugar-free version, use either swerve or monk fruit sugar. Both options work best in this recipe.

Notes

  • If your instant pot has a sterilizing function, I recommend you to sterilize your jars before storing condiments in them.
  • You can use the same process to make blueberry jam or a mixture of strawberry and blueberry jam.
  • If you do not want to use swerve, you can use sugar or agave syrup in this recipe. All these options give equally satisfying results.

Well, this is certainly a good reason to buy an Insta-pot. The jam looks so easy to make and I bet the strawberry taste is super intense. My daughter has an Insta-pot and I’m going to borrow it. The strawberries are still on sale here – can’t wait to make the recipe.

I don’t know what I did wrong…I used Lakanto sweetener and followed all directions. The next morning after the jam had been chilled in the fridge, the sugar crystallized and you can taste the sugar crystals when you taste it.

I am so sorry, it happened. I also use Lakanto Monk Fruit sweetener. Sometimes, sugar alcohols in alternative sugar sweeteners react in certain conditions. I would suggest to warm the jam a little and blend it in a high-speed blender before using. That may help.
