Pressure Cooker Chunky Applesauce



Our past sponsor, Instant Pot, gave us the opportunity to play and revel in this fantastic new electric pressure cooker. This beauty does it all: 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Cooker: Pressure cooker, Slow cooker, Rice Cooker/Porridge Maker, Steamer, Sauté/Browning, Yogurt Maker & Warmer. For our Past Sponsor Challenge, I decided to make something I hadn’t made before. I decided on applesauce, since its fall. I gave some of this batch to my MIL, and she raved about it. She warmed it, and put in on top of vanilla ice cream, and topped it with crumbled lemon cookies. The next morning she put it on pancakes. She and her friend were in applesauce heaven! I don't think I'm going overboard to call the Instant Pot, the Magic Pot. I have made cheesecake in the Instant Pot. It may have been the best cheesecake I have ever made. I have cooked rice at the snap of my fingers. I could go on forever about the eggs that practically peel themselves, and the “poached” eggs I have made. Give the Instant Pot a try, and join the rest of us who continue to be amazed by it’s capabilities.

Pressure Cooker Chunky Applesauce
by Sharyl W.

8 medium to large apples (I used an assortment of Granny Smith, Honeycrisp and Gala)
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup of sugar (I used white, but one could also use brown sugar)

Add the water and lemon juice to the Instant Pot liner pot. Peel, core and slice, or chop the apples. Add the apples, nutmeg, cinnamon and sugar, to the pot. Set high pressure manual for 6 minutes and then NPR (natural pressure release) until pressure drops and lid can be removed. For smoother applesauce, blend with an immersion blender or mixer. I like ours to be chunky, so I didn't do this step. 

Note: I discovered later that most don't peel their apples. Peeling apples is a step I detest, so I will never again peel my apples, for applesauce! I didn't want real sweet applesauce, so I didn't use much sugar. Adjust to personal taste.

  2. There are two sorts of weight cookers, the old-style, or the "original" models, and the new-style, or the "advanced age" models. More established models utilize a moving "jigger valve" that makes its murmuring and earsplitting sound.electric pressure cookers

  3. Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Bless you!

  4. The yogurt function of a pressure cooker starts by heating the milk to a high temperature for pasteurization, then continues at a lower temperature for fermentation. You can make a batch directly in the cooking insert or in individual glass jars.

  6. Surprisingly, InstaPot has all this and now is the time to grab this beautiful kitchen gadget. I have been an anti-cooker chef throughout my life. I used to have other cookers but I didn’t use them quite often because of the potential threats all cookers pose. But I am glad I came across a useful review of Instant Pot.

  8. Coming in at a slightly more affordable price than the P600, the Advanced Platinum Series P450 still offers fantastic quality to cannabis growers. The only difference is that this model has 450 watts rather than 600. Naturally, which unit you choose is down to the size of the crop you want to grow. You can expect 2-3x the intensity of other lights due to the high PAR output per watt. In order to flourish, crops really need the full light spectrum.
