Pressure Cooker Cinnamon Pear Applesauce Recipe

Instructions

Plug in the electric pressure cooker.

Place the  apples, pears, water, ground cinnamon, and fresh lemon juice into the pot and stir to combine.

Place the lid onto the pot and close to lock.

Switch the vent to “Sealing” and set to cook on manual high pressure for 4 minutes.

Once the cooking time has completed, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, then manually release any remaining pressure.

Taste and, if desired, add honey to sweeten.

Transfer the mixture to a food processor or high-powered blender and blend until smooth. If you prefer a chunkier applesauce, use an immersion blender for greater control instead.

Serve immediately, or transfer to airtight containers and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Enjoy!

I don’t think I’ve had homemade apple sauce since I was younger. I can remember my mum making it to go alongside the Sunday roast. But I’ve never tried to make it myself, I have to try this out.

I’ve never made applesauce before, but this sounds so simple and easy to make! It’s great that it’s naturally gluten-free. If you replace the honey with a different sweetener (e.g. agave nectar) then it would be suitable for vegans too.

Ohh now this sounds really interesting, I can’t think of the last time I had applesauce and I don’t think I’ve ever had one quite like this. I love that it is made with a pressure cooker.

The pear and apple sauce sounds really yummy and ideal to go with a few dishes. I didn’t realise you could make a sauce of any kind in a pressure cooker, that’s clever.

Sounds like a great combination of ingredients for a delicious sauce. Never knew you could use a slow cooker to make a sauce.

Looks like an awesome recipe to try this weekend. I never tried making my own, but I guess there is always a first time. Thanks for the recipe!

This reminds me of the apple butter we had with our friends from Pennsylvania, which was delicious. I have a cake recipe that is perfect to use for this type of sauce, and would love to give it a go with your pear apple recipe.

Now this versatile sauce sounds like a treat. Can’t believe it’s so quick to make. Having it with a Sunday roast or even a nice pudding this sauce is brilliant. Thanks for the recipe. Will give it a try – I imagine it will go nice in my morning yogurts too
