You only need four ingredients and a few minutes to make this easy peach jam in the Instant Pot. With no refined sugar or pectin, this recipe comes together in less than 30 minutes.
2 1/2 lbs fresh peaches — very ripe, (6.5 cups, pitted and chopped)
1/2 cup honey — or more up to 1 cup, if desired
1 lemon — juiced, (about 1/4 cup juice)
1 Tbs vanilla extract
1. Pit the peaches. Chop into chunks (about 1 inch each). Add peaches, lemon juice and honey to the Instant Pot. Set the valve to “sealing.” Start the IP in manual mode for 1 minute at high pressure. Let it work and release the pressure naturally. Carefully open the IP using an oven mitt or pot holder.
2. Switch the IP to sauté mode and set to “less.” Stirring occasionally, saute until most of the liquid has evaporated and the jam has thickened.
3. Turn off the IP. Stir in the vanilla extract. At this point you can use an immersion blende for a smoother consistency or leave it chunky for a more rustic feel.
4.Store the jam in jars and refrigerate for a week or two OR freeze for an easy freezer jam that will keep for at least 6 months. Just thaw it about 15 minutes before you’re ready to eat it.
