How to make homemade applesauce in the Instant Pot

Two minute Applesauce


What's Cookin!


To date, this is about the easiest recipe I have ever made. Not only in the Instant Pot-but ever! Today I am sharing how to make homemade applesauce in the Instant Pot. Cook time was 2 minutes, and prep time was about 5 minutes. It was the first time I ever used an apple peeler and I seriously don’t know why it has taken me this long to use it. I have an old vintage one I picked up at an antique mall years ago for about 50 cents. I just thought it was cool and had it displayed in our kitchen. I will never peel another apple again without using the peeler. I found this one below on Amazon for you. It is must have.

I only had about 8 apples on hand. Last week when I made homemade stuffing I used a few apples out of my bag. Next time I plan on picking up a few bags and making a lot more homemade applesauce. It tasted like apple pie in a jar without all the calories. I could have been bad and added cool whip on top, but I did not. In this recipe I did not even use sugar. Apples are sweet enough on their own. From what I am told Fuji is the best apple to use for applesauce. I had Gala on hand and one Granny smith.

My mind started swirling in every direction while making the homemade applesauce. I was thinking what cute homemade gifts these make around the holidays. You can pick up a few cases of mason jars just about anywhere. Make your applesauce, add a cute fabric around the lid and a special gift tag for that special someone. Who wouldn’t love homemade applesauce?!

Impress your neighbors and friends this holiday season. They will think you sweated and slaved for hours over a hot stove. I won’t tell them it only took you 10 minutes to make.

While you are sweating and slaving I can tell you one thing, your house will smell AMAZING!~

Pin it, make it, LOVE!!~

Enjoy! Hope to see you back again. See recipe down below.

First peel and core your apples. I used my apple peeler and it was a breeze.

NOTES: I don't think it would matter how many apples you used at a time. I believe the cook time would be the same.

Step 2

Add honey on top of apples, mix well with spoon. Depending on the consistency you like of apple sauce, you can use a hand masher, emergent blender, or hand mixer. I chose the hand masher and LOVED the way the consistency turned out. Smooth, with some little chunks.

Step 9

Scoop in mason jars and let cool before placing your lid and seal on. Refrigerate. ENJOY:)
