  • 1 lb. strawberries
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 1 orange


  1. Start by prepping the strawberries. Rinse them thoroughly, then remove the greens with a paring knife. Slice the strawberries in half and place them into the pot of your Instant Pot.
  2. Sprinkle the sugar over the top of the halved strawberries and allow them to sit for 10 minutes or so. The sugar will release the juices from the strawberries, which is necessary for the Instant Pot method to work.
  3. Use a reamer or juicer to juice the orange, then pour 1 ounce of the fresh orange juice over the strawberries and sugar.
  4. Lock the lid of your Instant Pot, then select the “Manual” option. Cook on high pressure for 1 minute, then wait 15 minutes after the cooking is done for the pressure to release naturally.
  5. The strawberries will have cooked down into a thick compote of sorts.
  6. Transfer the mixture to your blender or use an immersion blender to achieve your desired jam texture.
  7. Store in an airtight container in your refrigerator, and apply liberally to toast, ice cream, or just grab a spoon.
