Instant Pot Raspberry Jam without Pectin / Homemade Raspberry Jam

How to Make Instant Pot Raspberry Jam without Pectin / Homemade Raspberry Jam
Hello Foodies, 
         This container of summer and fall flavors might be just what's required to lift the mood on dark, gloomy winter days. I started making jam a few years ago and have always enjoyed it. Whereas possible, I reduce the amount of sugar, because the tarter the fruits, the freshener tasting the results. To make all-fruit jam, you need to choose fresh, good quality, just ripe fruits. Leave the store-bought stuff for another time. 


This Instant Pot Raspberry Jam recipe is quicker and easier than you'd expect. Pick your favorite fruit and get cooking. The entire process, from cutting the fruit to spooning the cooked jam into a jar, takes about 15 to 20 minutes.

          Some people like jam with lots of seeds in it, some don't. Jam is not just for spreading on bread, but it tastes good with ice cream, or use it to jazz up some bland rice pudding or add in between the layers of a cake. If anything is a superfood, it's chia seeds. They're packed with omega-3 fatty acids, rich in fiber and protein, and most important for our jam-making purposes, they turn any liquid into a thick gel. The best ratio of fruit to chia seeds is two cups of fruit to two tablespoons of chia seeds. Start with this ratio, then if your fruit was very juicy or you'd like a thicker consistency, stir in more chia seeds one teaspoon at a time.


          There are a few delicious ways to let summer fruit live on year-round, but my favorite is homemade jam and jelly. I just love this thick, sweet spread, layered over toast or swirled through yogurt and oats.
