Hello fellow foodies,
I know I’ve said it before but you guys the instant pot is a game changer! We made applesauce in it today and canned it!
Smells like apple pie in our kitchen right now 😍
Applesauce Recipe: (original recipe)
- 4lbs of apples;cored, diced & peeled
- 1tsp lemon zest
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (maybe a dash more)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup of water
Mix together in instant pot.
Canning– (video resource)
Put boiling water in jars we used 3 half pint jars. I just microwaved some water and poured it in them. Jars need to be hot.
Quickly rinse out instant pot. Place trivet in your instant pot add water to trivet line.
Note: Our altitude is close to sea level so we did 12min. Unplug instant pot and wait for your float valve to drop(about 2min).
Remove cans and let cool at room temperature up to 12hrs until they pop and seal.
Enjoy 😘 If you choose not to can the applesauce you can keep it in the fridge(up to 10 days) or freezer (up to 6 months).
Happy apple picking,
