  • 2 lbs apples about 7 apples is what we used, peeled, cored, chopped
  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1/2 c rolled oats optional - (if feeding very young babies leave out as it makes it chunkier)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup real syrup is best
  • 1/4 c apple cider
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp butter melted


  • Remove skins from apples, or leave just a bit on if you want a little texture., slice pcs. 1/4" thick.
  • Put sliced apples in pressure cooker.
  • Pour apple cider and maple syrup on top.
  • Sprinkle brown sugar and oats (optional, not quick oats) on top of that, sprinkle cinnamon on top.
  • Pour melted butter on top of everything.
  • Put lid on and close steam valve.
  • Set to pressure high for 8 minutes (times vary a bit depending on type of apple, and thickness you have cut your apple slices). Picture shows 8 minutes.
  • Do a quick release. Apples should be so soft that they don't even have to be blended, just stir and you have perfect homemade applesauce.
  • Or use an immersion blender to make very smooth.
