Ground Cinnamon or 2" stick
Press SAUTE mode on Instant Pot.
Slice the apples or cut them into pieces. Discard the core, stem and seeds.
Add apples, cinnamon powder and water to the Pressure Cooker. Stir it all up. Close lid.
Start the Pressure Cooker on manual or pressure cook mode at high pressure for 6 minutes. Once the pressure cooker beeps, let the pressure release naturally.
If using Cinnamon stick, remove it from the pot. Use an immersion blender or blender to smooth the applesauce to the consistency you prefer. Be careful if blending when the apples are still hot.
Finally, add honey and mix well. (If you want little more thick , saute for 2 more mins and adjust the consistency)
Let it cool, then place in air tight containers to store in refrigerator. Enjoy!
Peeling Apples: If you prefer, you can peel the apples and follow the same method.
Spices: There are other spices that go well with Applesauce – Nutmeg, Cloves, Cardamom. Try them and see what you prefer.
Sweetener: I have add a sweetener such as honey , if you preferred sugar add the amount based on your family’s preference.
Double? - This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. Keep in mind that apples can foam, so only fill to half the capacity of the pot.
Storage: This applesauce can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days and can be freezes up to 2 months. Store in small containers.
