This homemade Instant Pot Applesauce recipe is easy and makes a great snack or side dish that the whole family loves!
If you think making homemade applesauce is difficult, I’m here to tell you that it absolutely is not. Especially if you make this Instant Pot Applesauce recipe!
And wow! The flavor! The pressure cooker is the perfect tool for cooking homemade applesauce because not only is it quick and easy, but it also creates incredible flavor. It tastes so much better than the applesauce you buy in the store.
I choose to not peel my apples when making my Instant Pot Applesauce. I use my Vitamix blender to make the sauce, and it makes it very smooth even with the peels left on. So I see no reason to take the time to remove them. Plus the skin has a lot of nutrition–why would I want to take that away?!
I have made this with a mix of tart and sweet apples and also with all sweet. I prefer the complexity that comes from mixing it up, but my daughter liked it with all sweet apples. The choice is yours!
I also choose to not add any sweeteners. I think it’s plenty sweet from the apples alone and we use cinnamon, which complements the flavor perfectly. If you are used to only sweetened applesauce, you can always add some sugar. You do you! 🙂
This Instant Pot Applesauce is perfect for a snack and I also love it as a side dish when I need a little something extra to round out a meal. My kids never complain when I serve apple sauce or baked apples with dinner!
