Instant Pot Applesauce
Delicious homemade applesauce just got easier, made in the instant pot or slow cooker. This Instant Pot applesauce recipe has no added sugar and can be made in just 15 minutes.
Side Dish, Snack
Granny Smith apples
, peeled, cored and roughly chopped (or Golden Delicious apples )
, peeled, cored and roughly chopped
fresh lemon juice
(from about 1/2 a lemon)
Peel and core apples. I use a johhny apple peeler to do all three steps at once (peel, spice and core).
Add water, lemon juice and cinnamon to instant pot and stir to combine. Add apples and toss to mix.
Secure lid and cook on manual (high pressure) for 8 minutes. Do a controlled quick release or allow the pressure to naturally release.
Mash the apple mixture a few times with a potato masher, if desired. (If you like a smoother texture you could pulse it in the blender.)
Transfer contents to a bowl and allow to cool completely. Stir in more cinnamon, if desired, to taste.
Enjoy warm or cold. Store in the fridge for up to 7-10 days.
Makes about 5-6 cups applesauce
