Delicious enough to be apple butter, but with the texture of applesauce, this Instant Pot Applesauce is a must in your autumn arsenal. The recipe is cinnamon-y with a well-balanced blend of sweet and tart flavors that's made to be personalized. Looking for a little less sugar or spice? Simply adjust. Prefer your apple sauce chunky? Use a potato masher in step three to keep a little grit in your snack. Like your sauce on the smoother side? Try an immersion blender or transfer your mixture into a blender before stirring in your brown sugar. You can also adjust the taste with the apples you use. If you can't find Honeycrisp apples, Gala or Envy apples are great substitutes. Amp up the tartness with varieties like Granny Smith, Pink Lady, or Braeburn apples. Even though apples release a lot of liquid and juice, the water is crucial when using the pressure cooker. The high pressure can cause the dreaded BURN or ERROR signal on your cooker. Double your batch to package in small containers as gifts or to have extra on hand as an oil replacement in quick breads or cakes.
