  • 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!
