Awesome Instant Pot Applesauce
If you’re new to Instant Pot cooking, applesauce is one of the very first things you'll want to make - it's amazingly simple, and you don’t even have to peel the apples! #instantpot #applesauce
- 8 apples, quartered and seeds removed (I like to use a blend of Granny Smith and Jonathon and I leave my peelings on)
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 cup water, or sub apple juice or cider for the water and reduce amount of sugar used
- 1/3 - 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1-2 tsp. vanilla extract
Place water into pressure cooker pot, then add cinnamon, sugar, and apples. Lock lid into place and choose 5 minutes on high pressure.
When timer goes off, use a quick release to release all steam from chamber.
Remove lid and use an immersion blender to blend until smooth. (If you don’t have an immersion blender, a food processor works great too. Or, if you don’t have either of those tools, peel your apples before cooking them and you can use a potato masher on your cooked apples – works great if there’s no peelings involved!)
When applesauce has cooled a bit, stir in the vanilla and serve at once!
