Easy Instant Pot Applesauce
Easy Instant Pot Applesauce uses just 4 ingredients and no sugar. Make the BEST homemade applesauce with peeled or unpeeled apples in your pressure cooker!
- 10 small apples peeled or unpeeled, cored and sliced
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ⅛ teaspoon sea salt (optional)
- ¼ cup water
Add the apples to the Instant Pot
Sprinkle cinnamon and sea salt over apples, and pour water around the sides
Cover, turn vent to sealing position, and hit PRESSURE COOK for 4 minutes
Pot will take a few minutes to reach pressure, then cook for 4 minutes and beep when cooking is done
Do a gradual quick release to avoid liquid spraying from Pot, or allow pot to release naturally. When pin drops, open lid, and use an immersion blender for smooth applesauce or stir or mash with fork for chunky applesauce
Applesauce was made in a 6-quart Instant Pot electric pressure cooker.
Due to the high water content of the apples, 1/4 cup water is enough for pot to reach pressure. For thinner applesauce, use 1/2 cup water.
You can use unpeeled apples or peeled apples.
