Instant Pot Applesauce–I LOVE this recipe. This is a great one to pin for the fall. There is nothing better than giving your child, a nice cup of fresh and pure applesauce. I want you to try this, if you have never made homemade applesauce, you OWE it to yourself to try it.
Now, I have made applesauce and canned it for years, as has my mother and my grandmothers, but this method rocks it away, by light-years.
This is a very simple applesauce recipe, delicious homemade applesauce is so much easier with the help of the Instant Pot, and with only a few steps, it’s amazing.
HOW TO MAKE APPLESAUCE IN THE INSTANT POT:
The first thing is to find some great apples. If you just went apple picking, then just use a few of the apples you got. Otherwise, head to the grocery store, and look for some sweet or tart apples.
Depending on what type of apple sauce you want, I like a tart apple sauce, but my kids prefer sweet.
Here are some of my favorite apples to use for applesauce:
- Golden Delicious
- Pink Lady Apples
- Fuji Apples
- McIntosh Apples
- Cortland Apples
- Crispin Apples
Now, you do have to peel the apples before you cut them up and add them to the Instant Pot.
Once you peel your apples and cut them up, place them into the Instant Pot, add the butter, ground cinnamon, honey, lemon juice, salt, and water.
Then add your lid and set the manual high pressure to 3 minutes, when the time is up, allow a natural release. Only when all of the pressure has been released open the Instant Pot.
Then you will either need to transfer the apples to a blender, to blend until smooth or use an immersion blender and blend until smooth.
