How To Make Instant Pot Spiced Apple Cider
Start by dicing the apples, and you do need to peel the apples. Add the diced apples to the Instant Pot. Add the cinnamon sticks, cloves, star anise, and brown sugar. Mix well.
Add water so that the water line is slightly above the apples. Add your lid, and set the manual high pressure for 15 minutes. When the time is up, let the Instant Pot naturally release. Remove the lid, straining the liquid, and then use a mixer or a potato masher to mash the fruit. Use a piece of cheesecloth to drain the mixtures.
