How to Make an Mixed Cherry Berry Jam
Combine the cherries, blackberries and jalapenos together with the sugar and place it in the Instant Pot.
Let it sit together for 30 minutes and then add the apple cider vinegar and stir together.
Place the lid on top and make sure it is set to sealing.
Set it for manual high heat for 1 minute and then allow a 15 minute natural release.
Mash the mixture together or use a hand blender.
Turn the Instant Pot onto saute and allow the pepper jam to boil.
Add the pectin, mix well and allow to simmer for 2 to 3 minutes or until it thickens slightly.
Turn off the Instant Pot and allow it to cool completely.
Once it is cooled, move it to jars and seal.

When the jam is made and stored in the refrigerated it will last up to 2 months. If you use a canning method, the jam can have a shelf life of 2 years.
What Peppers go Into Pepper Jam?
This recipe is a simple pepper jam and it uses jalapeno peppers. You could change this for a spicier pepper if you prefer. I think the jalapenos give the right amount heat to the jam.
