Instant Pot Applesauce

Fresh cooked Instant Pot Applesauce is rich with natural flavors and has a soft delicate creamy texture that is refreshingly smooth. Spread this delicious sauce over a warm piece of bread for a mid morning personal reward or as an easy to make snack with a glass of milk any time of the day. Instant pot applesauce is a buttery cinnamon laced way to distract yourself from the demands of a daily routine and is a delight to share with others. Return to the practices from long ago by making your own apple sauce but use a modern method for simple and easy pressure cooking. A time tested recipe using the instant pot enhanced techniques is a great way to make your own homemade applesauce. I have made this a few times and it never lasts very long.

Today’s recipe, IP Applesauce, is a nutritious kid friendly offering that everyone in the home will enjoy. This did not last a week in my house due to my family eating every last bite but it keeps well when refrigerated and is good cold but is best enjoyed warm (in my opinion). You may never buy jared and processed Applesauce again once you try this user friendly fun to make recipe.
