Instant Pot Apple Sauce

Instant Pot Apple Sauce

I had beautiful apples on my backyard tree this year and I processed them all into several bags of frozen apples, three dozen apple muffins, a double-batch of apple scones and several apple crisps to eat, to share and to freeze.  

On a recent trip out to the farm, I ran across several trees that were teeming with apples, and even though the last thing I needed were more apples, I just had to rescue them!

What to do with all the apples?

The easiest thing I have found to do with them is to make homemade apple sauce in my Instant Pot. My kids and I love it so much, I just had to share it with you. 

I find this recipe is great for little apples and those that are a bit bruised, because you don't even have to peel them! It all comes out looking and tasting the same.  

I fill my instant pot up to the half-way mark with quartered apples, but you could probably use more or less. Add a half-cup of water and a several generous shakes of cinnamon. Some recipes suggest lemon juice. I have left it out {accidentally} and didn't find a noticeable change, so let's keep it simple. Shall we?

Instant Pot Apple Sauce

~ around 2 pounds of cored and sliced apples
~ 1/2 cup water
~ cinnamon to taste

Follow the directions for properly sealing your Instant Pot. Set the pressure timer for 8 minutes. Allow a 10-minute (or longer) natural release.

Use a potato masher or electric hand mixer to mash the apples.

Serve warm or cold or use in baking. Refrigerate or freeze.

Go ahead and rescue as many apples as you can this season! A great place to find apples this season is the Petrofka Orchard AppleFest on Saturday, September 7, 12 to 6 p.m.
