  • 20-25 apples Apples – approximately 10 cups sliced apples
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon juice optional if canning be sure to use lemon juice
  1. Fill the sink full of water and wash all of the apples
  2. Slice, core and peel the apples. Some say you really don’t need to peel the apples, but I do. It would add extra fiber, but not sure what the texture would be.
  3. If you don’t have a slicer, just cut up the apples into 1 inch chunks.
  4. Fill the Instant Pot with apples. Don’t go over the max line.
  5. Add 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice.
  6. Add 3/4 cup water
  7. Place the lid on the Instant Pot and flip valve for pressure.
  8. Click “MANUAL” high pressure
  9. Adjust time to 5 minutes
  10. ‘NATURAL RELEASE” After timer goes off let pressure release naturally for approximately 24 minutes.
  11. Remove lid. Take an immersion blender and blend until it is the consistency that you like.
  12. Ladle into glass jars.
  14. Place jars in hot water bath and process 20 minutes. Start timing when the water is at a rapid boil.
  15. Remove jars and place on dish cloth. Let them sit for 24 hours to make sure it seals. They will usually seal within minutes.
