Instant Pot Gingered Applesauce
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 5-6 cups
  • 3 pounds firm apples (sweet or tart), cored and cut into chunks
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  1. Place the apple chunks, water, lemon juice, ginger, and sea salt in the bottom of your Instant Pot and stir to combine. Close and lock the lid and cook on Manual High Pressure for 4 minutes.
  2. When the timer goes off, promptly use a wet rag to quick-release the pressure (this is necessary to prevent burning). Turn off the warming function and remove the lid. Allow to cool for 10 or more minutes.
  3. When the mixture is cool enough to safely handle, transfer to a blender or food processor and blend until desired consistency is reached.
  4. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
