If you’re looking for a fun fall way to use your Instant Pot, look no further: Nothing is tastier than a homemade applesauce using seasonally fresh ingredients. You can leave it a little chunky (perfect for spooning over top waffles) or process it with an immersion blender, for a smoother taste.
How to Make It
Peel half of the pears and apples. Discard cores and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Stir together apples, pears and remaining ingredients in an instant pot. Lock the lid in place; turn the pressure release valve to seal. Program instant pot to cook on manual, at high pressure, and cook for 5 minutes. Turn valve to quick release steam until float valve drops. Carefully remove lid and discard lemon peel and cinnamon sticks. Remove applesauce and place in a medium bowl. Serve warm or chill in the refrigerator to serve cold.
