I received an Instant Pot (multipurpose pressure cooker) for Christmas this year and I’ve had fun over the past couple of months trying it out. I asked my weekly newsletter subscribers (sign up here) if they would be interested in me posting pressure cooker recipes in the future and a bunch of them were interested, so here I am.
I’ve only used my Instant Pot a handful of times, so I’m still learning, but I’m excited to start sharing some new recipes here with you guys in the weeks and months to come.
Today I’m sharing a super quick and simple recipe for applesauce. I used my Johnny Apple Peeler by VICTORIO to quickly core, peel and slice my apples, but you can also do it with a knife or apple cutter. I prefer to make it unsweetened, but feel free to add sugar if you want. I really love how I can just add a couple of ingredients to the Instant Pot, set it and walk away. I also love how QUICK it cooks everything.
Leave me a comment below and let me know if you have an Instant Pot and also what kind of recipes you would like me to share in the future. I was thinking about sharing a potato salad recipe next where you cook the potatoes and eggs at the same time in the Instant Pot. What do you think??
Instant Pot Applesauce
makes 5 cups
1/4 cup water
10 medium apples (I used Fuji)
1 tsp cinnamon
Step 1: Peel, core and slice apples.
Step 2: Add apples and water to Instant Pot.
Step 3: Seal lid, hit the manual button and adjust time to 5 minutes for large apple chunks. You may want to cook for less time if you have small pieces of apples.
Step 4: When cooking time ends, allow the pressure to release naturally. Remove the lid and let apples cool.
Step 5: Add apples and cinnamon to blender. Blend well. Enjoy!
