No Sugar Added Instant Pot Applesauce
This easy recipe takes the guesswork out of making applesauce - made simply with organic apples and water, NO added sugar!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 4 minutes
Total Time 14 minutes
- 4 crisp, organic apples (each one should weigh about six ounces)
- 1/4 cup water
Peel the apples to your liking. I take off about half of the peel (see pictures below).
Slice the apples around the core, then, lay the flat side down and continue cutting into thin slices (see below).
Add the sliced apples and water to the Instant Pot.
Set the Instant Pot to high pressure for four minutes.
Once complete, let the pressure manually release for 10 minutes (the display will read LO10). In other words, don't touch the pot for 10 minutes!
To make chunky applesauce, remove a spoonful of the apples (about 3/4 cup), and set it aside. (Skip this step and just mash the apples for a smoother sauce.)
Then, mash the remaining apples to your liking (I just use a potato masher).
Add the reserved apples back and give the applesauce a stir.
Allow the applesauce to cool and store it in an air-tight container in the fridge (I use a mason jar).
Use as desired!
