  • Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 60 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Remove cinnamon sticks. Mash apples with a potato masher or spoon. Return cinnamon sticks to the pot.

  • Continue cooking on high pressure for another 60 minutes, allowing 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Repeat quick-release, about 5 minutes. Strain out cider using a strainer or cheesecloth; discard solids. Serve hot or cold.

Cook's Note:

My favorite apples to mix are Honey Crisp, Granny Smith, Pink Lady, and Gala.
