  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, 10 to 40 minutes. Unlock and remove lid. Add cinnamon stick and select Saute function; cook until sauce thickens, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove and discard cinnamon stick.

  • Blend sauce with an immersion blender for a smoother consistency. Let cool; sauce will continue to thicken naturally.

This is very easy indeed. I used a potato masher to keep it chunky. This was delicious on toast and with cheese. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

The Instant Pot is good for a no-hassle way to make cranberry sauce. I made half a batch but used 1 cup sugar and still used 1/4 cup orange juice. It was not runny at all. I put the cinnamon stick in right at the beginning and the flavor is still mild. I heard the beep when it was done and didn't have time to get to the pot for 40 minutes. Once I started stirring they smashed very easily and no immersion blender was necessary. I only sautéed for maybe 2 minutes and it was thick. At first I gave this 4 stars as it was pretty good warm when I tried it. However I let it sit in the fridge overnight and it is just one big clump. This recipe needs more orange juice; all others recipes I've looked at call for more liquid. Read More
