Instant Pot Chunky Apple Sauce

Instant Pot Chunky Apple Sauce is so quick and easy that you can enjoy fresh apple sauce at any time of the year.  

This palatable recipe serves 4 as a dessert or can be enjoyed by more as a sauce to accompany a pork dish.

To start, I peeled and sliced enough apples to measure 8 cups.

Then I put some hot water in my Instant Pot before dumping in the sliced apples.

Next I sprinkled some granulated sugar and some ground cinnamon over the apples in the Pot.  I did not stir.

I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 2 minutes.

Once the Instant Pot was done cooking, I immediately turned the steam release handle to the venting position and finished with a Quick Release.

After removing the lid I used a potato masher to mash the apples to my desired consistency.  

How chunky you leave it will depend on personal preference.

Serve up some fresh Instant Pot Chunky Apple Sauce any time of the year as a dessert or sauce for your favourite pork dish. 

It can be enjoyed warm or cold.

    Made with the exception of water, I had apple juice in the refrigerator so use that. After cooking I tasted it and the sauce was a bit Sweet, I am sure it was because I added the Apple Juice and didn’t decrease the sugar. Also, I think I would’ve liked more cinnamony, but that’s a personal preference . All in all a good, easy to follow recipes thank you
