How To Make Cherry Jam In The Instant Pot

This jam is made in the Instant Pot and it is not processed in a waterbath since it doesn’t make much. You can keep it in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks (it never lasts that long at our house) or freeze it in a freezer-safe containers.

Cherry Jam Ingredients

To make this Cherry Jam you will need honey, cherries, lemon juice and one package pectin.

First you need to clean, pit, and chop your cherries. Place your Instant pot on sauté. Add in the honey, and allow to melt for about 2 minutes. Turn off Instant Pot.

After the honey has melted, add in the cherries, juice of one half of a lemon, and pectin powder. Stir cherries to combine all ingredients.

Turn your Instant pot back on and set to high pressure for 5 minutes. Place the lid on, close the valve, and press start.

After the 5 minutes is over, allow to naturally release. After about 10 minutes, if you cannot open the top you will need to open the valve and allow the rest of the pressure to release.

Add the jam into sterilized glass jars and properly seal. Place upside down until they cool completely. Place in your refrigerator.

Enjoy this delicious Cherry Jam for breakfast, as a snack or dessert. It’s so versatile.
