1poundfrozen strawberries(3 to 4 cups)
¼cuppure maple syrup
Pinch of sea salt
Add the strawberries, maple syrup and salt to your Instant Pot.
Lock the lid and make sure the release valve is in the sealed position. Set cooker to HIGH pressure for 1 minute.
Allow the steam to release naturally for 10 minutes after cooking time is finished. Once the float valve has dropped, press Cancel and unlock to remove the lid.
Stir in the chia seeds and press Saute button. As the jam simmers, stir it frequently with a wooden spoon, lightly breaking up the strawberries as you stir. Once the jam begins to thicken, after about 5 minutes, press Cancel and allow the jam to cool.
Transfer the jam into a glass mason jar, secure with lid and store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
Stovetop Instructions: Cook the strawberries in a saucepan over medium-high heat and until the berries start to break down and the mixture is bubbling. You can use the back of a spoon or potato masher to mash the berries and create your desired consistency. Reduce the heat to medium low and stir in the maple syrup, salt and chia seeds until well blended. Remove mixture from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
Be sure to use only pure maple syrup, not pancake syrup, when making this jam.The time it takes for your Instant Pot to come up to pressure and 10-minute natural pressure release after cooking will take much longer than the 1 minute cooking time. The 10 minute natural pressure release afterwards is necessary to prevent any sticky red juice from shooting out from the vent.Serving size: 1 tablespoon1*SmartPoints (Green plan)1*SmartPoints (Blue plan)1*SmartPoints (Purple plan)0*PointsPlus (Old plan)
