In this tutorial I’ll show you how to make our favorite Instant Pot Applesauce just in time for apple season!
It took a bit of convincing, but yes the cooler weather has got me back in my kitchen. Our apple trees had a great year, which is always exciting!

We’ve been snacking on apples and cooking up some warm applesauce to freeze for the winter. And by winter I mean, it’ll last until the end of November, maybe!
We will be using our Instant Pot for this recipe, but we have also made this applesauce in the Crock Pot or in our Dutch Oven.

Wash, peel, core and cut apples. We love using this little machine that does all of that for us!
The kids love to help prep and core the apples using our Johnny Apple Peeler!
After coring and peeling, I cut the apples in half and toss them into the instant pot with 1 cup of water, 1/4 cup of lemon juice and 1 cup of red hots.
Seal your Instant Pot and use the ‘steam’ setting for 20 minutes.
Once your sauce is done cooking, allow the pressure to release naturally, remove lid and chop up a bit and stir. The apples should be soft. I use my immersion blender to blend to a smooth consistency.
At this point you could add a bit of sugar, stevia or honey for more sweetness. We used our honey crisp apples and didn’t need to add any sugar this time.
We fill up little jars and add easy lids so the kids can take them from the fridge to school. Freezing larger jars of applesauce is a great way to have the sweet taste of fall all year round.
