Printable Recipe for Awesome Instant Pot Applesauce:
Awesome Instant Pot 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, or 1-2 cinnamon sticks
- 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, depending on how sweet you prefer your applesauce
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- Place the water into Instant Pot; add the cinnamon, sugar, and apples. Lock the lid into place choosing the High Pressure setting for 5 minutes; bring the Instant Pot up to full pressure.
- When timer sounds, perform a quick release to remove all the pressure from the Instant Pot. Unlock and carefully remove the Instant Pot lid.
- Using an immersion blender, blend the contents of the Instant Pot until smooth. *If you don’t have an immersion blender, a food processor works great too. Or, if you prefer not to use either of these kitchen appliances, peel your apples before pressure cooking them. This way you can use a potato masher or mixer to process your cooked apples until smooth.
- When applesauce has cooled a bit, stir in the vanilla and serve at once!
