  • Cut apples into 2-inch chunks. Discard the core, stem and seeds.
  • Place in Instant Pot along with 1 cup of water.
  • Close Instant Pot lid and set to manual high pressure (HP) for 8 minutes. Be sure the steam vent is sealed.
  • The Instant Pot will take about 8 minutes to reach high pressure, then will cook for 8 minutes.
  • Once the timer goes off, let sit for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Turn steam vent to release pressure. Once all steam has dissipated, open the lid.
  • Remove excess water if there is any.
  • Use an electric mixer or immersion blender to smooth out applesauce to the consistency you prefer. I like mine with some lumpiness to it. You may prefer it smooth.
  • Add 1-2 drops of cinnamon oil or cinnamon powder to taste.
  • Let cool or place in the refrigerator to cool down.
