My Top 5 Instant Pot Recipes: Easy and Delicious

Since I’ve been using my Instant Pot non-stop during this quarantine time, I thought I would share with you my top 5 Instant Pot recipes that are easy and delicious.

Strawberry Jam:

(Prep Time: 4 minutes; Cook Time: 26 minutes)

Main ingredients: fresh strawberries, sugar, lemon juice (I prefer orange juice), cornstarch and water. If you store this jam in your refrigerator it can last up to 3 weeks. I often use the hot water bath canning method to make a couple of batches of this jam. This canning method can keep the jam up to year and makes a great present. Click here for instructions. TIP: This is great jam to top your yogurt with. The yogurt recipe is below.

Adventures of a Nurse has a great air fryer bagel recipe. This is a bit of a messy recipe but so yummy. Main ingredients: flour, greek yogurt and egg.
