This recipe is so easy to make and better than any store-bought applesauce. The flavors of brown sugar, cinnamon, and a hint of nutmeg make for great applesauce any time of year.


  • 1.5 Pounds of apples (granny smith, fuji, honey crisp, or a combination)
  • ½ Cup water
  • 1 Tablespoon light brown sugar
  • ½ Teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon nutmeg


  1. Take the apples and peel and core them.  Cut into small pieces and add to a food processor or blender.
  2. Add the spices, sugar, and water and blend on high for 30-60 seconds (more or less depending on the consistency you desire) If you desire a thicker or chunkier applesauce blend for less time and for a smoother consistency blend longer.
  3. Place in the In Instant Pot and close and seal the lid and cook on high temp/pressure for 5 minutes.  Let the pressure release naturally which takes about 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from the pot and let cool in a container.  Place in the refrigerator and serve when ready.  (Some people like their applesauce cold and some prefer it warmer.  This is ready to eat at any stage in the process)
