Ginger Strawberry Compote

Ingredients

Instant Pot Air-Fried Strawberry Pop-Tarts
Ingredients for 14 servings 

1 serving – 1 tablespoon
  • 1 quart fresh strawberries, halved
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar or cane  sugar)
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger

Essential Tool

Instant Pot Duo Crisp + Air Fryer

Steps
  1. Place all ingredients (except arrowroot) in the Instant Pot Duo Crisp + Air Fryer.  Allow the berries to “sweat” with  the sugar for about 10 minutes in the pot before cooking.
  2. Set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook on HIGH temp with a cooking time of 1 minute.  Cook.
  3. Once the cooking cycle has completed, release the pressure then  stir up the strawberries.  Add the arrowroot & water and stir quickly to avoid clumping.
  4. Add the compote to an air-tight container to cool down.  Set aside.  Remove and clean the interior bin of the Instant Pot for air-frying.

Ginger Strawberry Pop Tart

Ingredients

Ingredients for 4 pop tarts

  • 8oz (227g) organic pie dough
  • 4 tablespoons Ginger Strawberry Compote (recipe above)

Essential Tool

Instant Pot Duo Crisp + Air Fryer

Available at: Walmart, Target and Amazon

Steps
  1. Roll out the pie dough until thin.
  2. Cut identical 3-inch rectangles out of  the dough.  You may have to do this in batches – roll out, cut out rectangles, ball up the dough, then roll it out again.
  3. In the middle of a rectangle add 1 tablespoon of the strawberry compote.  Place a rectangle on top of  it and press along the sides to seal it closed.
  4. Use a fork tongs to press along the edges to secure it even more and to create a pattern.
  5. Place the completed pop tart in the basket inside the Instant Pot Duo Crisp + Air Fryer.  Change the setting to  Air Fry, the temperature to 400F and time to 7 minutes.  Then, add the air-fry lid and air-fry!  Repeat for remaining pop-tarts.
