Instant Pot Applesauce

When life gives you too many apples, make Instant Pot Applesauce. It's a great addition to your meal prep arsenal. Recipe on Shutterbean.com!

Instant Pot Applesauce is meal prep staple in my house. Mostly because it’s easy to make (HELLO, it takes 10 minutes in the Instant Pot!) and because I almost always buy too many apples. They are Cooper’s favorite fruit, after all.

Everyone has different ways of making applesauce. Before I purchased my Instant Pot a few years ago, I used to make it in sauce pot on the stove. The process would take awhile. I’d have to stir the apples to make sure none stuck to the bottom of the pan. The only good thing about that process was that it made my house smell amazing. Having something on the stove for an hour is not good for my easily distracted brain.

When I’m doing my (almost) weekly meal prep, I make hard boiled eggs, clean out the instant pot insert and then chopped up/leftover apples from the previous week go in for applesauce. In less than 20 minutes I have a batch of hard-boiled eggs and applesauce to add to my lineup. That is why I LOVE my Instant Pot.
