Instant Pot Cranberry Applesauce
This Instant Pot cranberry applesauce is a great Thanksgiving or Christmas side dish or snack throughout the year. It's a great sweet homemade treat.
- 8 large apples we used fuji, granny smith are good too
- 1/3 c apple cider
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 3/4 c cranberries fresh, whole
- 2 tbsp butter melted
- 1/4 c brown sugar 1/3 cup if you want it sweeter
Core and skin all apples (sometimes I leave half the skin on for texture). Cut into thick slices and put into your Instant Pot.
Pour your apple cider in, drizzle on top your maple syrup, pour melted butter on top, put in cranberries (can increase to 1 cup if desired), and sprinkle your brown sugar on top.
Close lid and steam valve and set to high for 9 minutes.
Do a quick release when done.
Use an emersion blender to smooth applesauce or if you want it chunkier (like we do) just use a whisk inside your pot to break down apples but leave it as thick of a consistency as you'd like.
