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.
Add your apples to a mixing bowl.
Add cinnamon, ground cloves and a dash of sea salt. Mix well.
Place your cinnamon sticks on the bottom of the pot.
Put your apples in the Pot and pour one cup of water over them.
Place lid on, seal and set to High Pressure Manual for 2 minutes.
Once the pot beeps let natural release for 1 minute. Then do a Quick release.
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.
Scoop in mason jars and let cool before placing your lid and seal on. Refrigerate. ENJOY:)
