Homemade Applesauce in the Instapot

This is my favorite way to make applesauce!! It is delicious, nearly sugar free, and thick! MMMMMMM

Equipment Needed for this recipe


  1. Wipe off your apples (yuck Pesticides and grocery store germs!!!) I use the Norwex fruit and veggie cloth – it’s fantastic!
  2. Then, simply core your apples and slice into 4 parts.
  3. Place as many apples as you’d like – lets say 6 apples – into your pot. Add 1 cup of water (per 6 apples). Add 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice, 1 Tbsp Cinnamon, 1 tsp Nutmeg, and 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar.
  4. Turn your InstaPot on Manual Cook for 8 minutes.
  5. Allow to slow release (but you can definitely fast release if you’re low on time). Then spoon your finished apples, and enough water to thicken, into your Vitamix/Blender, or run it through your KitchenAid Attachment.
  6. Wala!!!!!!! Done!! Wasn’t that easy?

But Wait… how are you going to store your homemade goodness?

Don’t you just HATE going to the trouble to make food, then throwing it out because it spoiled before you had a chance to eat it? I do! I hate wasting! So I store my applesauce in these mason jars, because this is approximately what we can eat before the sauce goes bad (or we get tired of it). I then use my pressure canner (checkout minute 5:39 of my video to see why) to can my applesauce verses freezing it.

When I open each jar of applesauce, I love to use these plastic lids! They are much better than metal on your food.
