Plum Jam


Recipe Makes: 4 cups

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

8 plums

½ cup sugar*

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Wash, pit, and slice the plum into 6 slices.  Add plums and sugar to your Instant Pot, and  turn it on to saute mode.  Saute for about 7 minutes, or until plums start to get soft and release their juices. 
  2. Put the lid on the Instant Pot to sealing mode, and pressure cook for 3 minutes (takes about 10 minutes to warm up).  Then do a quick release after 5 minutes.  Saute for another 5 minutes, so the jam could thicken up.  Stir constantly so the jam doesn’t start to burn. 
  3. Use a potato masher, or whisk to break up the plums into small pieces.
  4. Let cool before transferring because jam will be hot.  Enjoy!

*If you like your jam on the sweeter side add more sugar.  I found that ½ a cup was perfect for me.  Not too sweet since the plums were sweet themselves.
