Tips for Making Instant Pot Applesauce 

  • Depending on what apples you choose, the applesauce may be sweeter or tangier. 
  • Setting aside time to meal prep into 1 cup portions makes this an easy grab and go option. 
  • Potato mashers work well, but if you need an immersion blender I recommend this one 
  • If you want some variations on applesauce add a lemon juice followed by whatever fruit you want to add! (Ex. pineapple, peach, blueberry, etc.)
