  • 4 gala apples
  • 4 granny smith apples
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup water


  • Peel and core apples. Slice into large chunks.
  • Place water, lemon juice, and cinnamon in the bottom of the pot and mix. Then add your apples and mix thoroughly to coat.
  • Cook on high pressure for 8 minutes, then allow to naturally release, or quick release if you prefer.
  • Mash with a potato masher or pure√© in a blender or food processor. Then store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for longer term. Enjoy!


You can leave the peels on the apples for a homestyle applesauce.
