Instant Pot Applesauce - Rachel Teodoro

Instant Pot Applesauce

I got my Instant Pot for Christmas and I'm still trying to figure out how to use it. It's a little bit intimidating but so far, I've not really screwed up anything so I guess that should make me feel a little bit better. If you got this far and are wondering what the heck and Instant Pot is, it's basically all anyone on the interwebs is talking about. It's like a crock pot for those days that you forget to start the crock pot. What it is really is an updated version of a pressure cooker except safer. Ask anyone over 60 about cooking with a pressure cooker and you are sure to hear a story of something blowing up or a meal that ended up on the ceiling. 

It's apple season and that means it's the perfect time to try using your Instant Pot for making homemade applesauce. I tried it, and it's a kid approved recipe, so come on over and check out the super easy recipe that will have you eating warm home cooked applesauce in under 20 minutes.


Instant Pot Applesauce Recipe



You will need:

Instant Pot

8-12 apples 
1/2 cup of water
1 Tbsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp of butter

I decided to leave the peel on the apples, you can peel them if you want. It's totally personal preference.

Dice them and place them inside your Instant Pot container.


Add your water, butter and your cinnamon. You may need more water depending on how hard your apples are. The harder the apples the more water you will need. You can always add more water after they cook so don't exceed 1 cup of water.

Use the manual mode on your Instant Pot and set it for 8 minutes. Once your Instant Pot is done, you can use an immersion blender or a regular blender or food processor if you want a creamier applesauce. If you like it chunky, a quick stir may be all you need.


I love eating my applesauce warm, so eat up and enjoy! Put the leftovers in a mason jar and store in your refrigerator. It won't last long though! Don't have an Instant Pot? Put one on your Christmas list. In the meantime, you can use this recipe in your crock pot.
