Instant Pot Applesauce
Instant Pot applesauce is the most hands off way to make it! This recipe is simple, has no added sugar, is loved by my kids, and works great for meal prep.
Servings: 8 cups
- 4 lbs apples (see *; peeled, cored & sliced)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- ¾ cup water (see **)
Peel + core apples. Cut into 1 inch pieces and place in the insert of a 6 or 8 quart Instant Pot with the vanilla, cinnamon and water.
Place the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to 'sealing', and pressure cook on high for 5 minutes.
Allow the pot to naturally depressurize (this takes around 35 minutes).
Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth.
* you can use any apples in this recipe, I prefer a mix of varieties and used 2 lbs of ambrosia and 2 lbs of granny smith for this recipe
** use up to 2 cups of water to make the sauce thinner
