How to Make Pressure Cooker Apple Sauce

This might be my easiest recipe yet. You can make this cinnamon applesauce using the Instant Pot or any electric pressure cooker. The reason I love it is because there’s absolutely no need to peel the apples. And when you get fresh, delicious apples, you don’t even need to add sugar.

How to Make Apple Butter

Once cooked, use an immersion blender to get the applesauce to the consistency you want. I went all the way smooth with this one but next time, I may leave it with a bit more texture. This smooth version works really well stirred into oatmeal or as a puree for apple muffins!

Course: Appetizer, Breakfast, Snack
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12 ½ cup servings
Calories: 52 kcal
Author: Marisa Moore Nutrition
  • 3 pounds apples, skin on (I used Gala)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  1. Wash, core, and slice the apples into large wedges.

  2. Add all ingredients to the Instant Pot pot.  Set the valve to "sealing." Start the IP in manual mode for 5 minutes at high pressure. Let it work and release the pressure naturally. Once the pressure is released, open the top using an oven mitt to protect your hands from the steam.

  3. Using an immersion blender, blend the apple mixture to the desired pureed consistency. Feel free to leave it chunky or make it smooth as shown here. Serve it warm or cold - as is with a spoon or use it to top oats!

Recipe Notes

Store in a sealed jar up to one week or freeze extra applesauce for up to 3 months.
