Conquer Your Instant Pot Fears

Even though the Instant Pot® has been on the market for a few years I am surprised to find how many are actually in fear of using this amazing pressure cooker. To conquer your Instant Pot® you must face them head on. You must jump in with both feet. Conquering any fears is never easy, however; once you do the results are liberating.

I feared the Instant Pot® for approximately two years until I was given no option but to use one and try to become an expert on its recipes and functions. Well, we all know that becoming an expert on something doesn’t happen over night. I am currently working on developing my skills. Yes, skills.

Can you imagine really needing skill to use this piece of equipment? Not many are required because of all of the pre-sets but, developing and trying new recipes can be a challenge. I have had successes and epic fails but, I still press on.

Make Delicious Instant Pot Applesauce

Making applesauce in the Instant Pot is simple and delicious. The best part about it is there is no added sugar! Store bought applesauce is loaded with sugars and chemicals. My Instant Pot Applesauce has only three ingredients: 8 Apples, 1/2 cup of Water and 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon or Applepie Spice. NO ADDED SUGAR. Use your favorite apple. I use 4 Granny Smith and 4 Gala Apples.

This graphics shows you how easily it can be made. Cook on high pressure for 3 minutes and then release steam. If you like chunky applesauce, mash with a spoon or potato masher. Put in the blender if you like it smooth.
