  1. Cut apples into 2-inch chunks. Discard the core, stem and seeds.
  2. Place in Instant Pot along with 1 cup of water.
  3. Close Instant Pot lid and set to manual high pressure (HP) for 8 minutes. Be sure the steam vent is sealed.
  4. The Instant Pot will take about 8 minutes to reach high pressure, then will cook for 8 minutes.
  5. Once the timer goes off, let sit for about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Turn steam vent to release pressure. Once all steam has dissipated, open the lid.
  7. Remove excess water if there is any.
  8. 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.
  9. Add 1-2 drops of cinnamon oil or cinnamon powder to taste.
  10. Let cool or place in the refrigerator to cool down.
