Easy Instant Pot Homemade Applesauce Recipe Tips:
- You can use whatever apples you like. I used honey crisp and Granny Smith.
- You can also choose to add the apples to the pot with the peels. Peeled is my preferred method.
- Allow the Instant Pot to naturally release steam when it indicates it has finished. Apples work just fine in the Instant Pot without a quick release.
- Load the applesauce up with your favorite toppings for the perfect treat!
