Simple, quick, and most of all, delicious! I made it exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. I used an apple peeler/corer/slicer and was done with prep work in minutes. When the apples were cooked, I just used a potato masher and that worked perfectly for a slightly chunky texture, which I love. Read More

I made this recipe as written. It was incredible! I tasted it when it was cooked and decided to add the salt; it really added more depth. As I used my immersion blender I realized that left a little chunky this would make a great side to any pork dish a topping for pancakes........ Thanks for the recipe! Read More

The aroma of this lovely applesauce is divine not to mention the taste. It took 10 minutes for the pressure to build cooked for 8 minutes then 17 minutes for natural release. I used one of those apple peeler/corer/slicers which slice the apples quite thin so I didn't need to blend the sauce at all just a good stir with a wooden spoon did it for me. The 3 tbsp of water was just right. It's the perfect amount of sweetness and spiciness and I didn't add any salt. I will be buying great big bags of apples just to use for this recipe. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This was amazing! The only change that I made was to omit the salt. This will be a repeat at our house! Read More

Simple and delicious. The Instant Pot sure takes the time out of making applesauce. I did miss the smell of it cooking though. I couldn t smell it at all until the lid came off. Mmmmm! I used powdered cinnamon to taste since I didn t have sticks on hand and I forgot the salt and didn t miss it. Read More

The applesauce tasted very good however there is not nearly enough maple syrup in this to call it maple flavored. I had to nearly TRIPLE the amount of maple syrup before I even started to taste anything close to a maple flavor. Again without the adding of the extra flavor the sauce tasted very good but if you truly want maple flavor in your applesauce you will need to add much more than the recipe calls for. Not sure if using maple extract would help but just something I thought of after the fact. Read More
