Homemade Applesauce is simple and delicious. Whether you prefer Granny Smith, Macintosh, or Honey Crisp, a few spoonfuls of cinnamon and sugar bring out the sweet-tart flavors of all your favorite apple varieties. With its slow cook setting, your NESCO Pressure Cooker simmers apples to softness in just 3 to 4 hours. Tip: Use handpicked apples for the freshest flavor.
Your Key Ingredient:
5 lbs tart apples, peeled, sliced, and cored
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cup water
1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice (prevents browning)
- Add apples, cinnamon, and sugar to NESCO® Pressure Cooker. Add water and lemon juice and stir gently.
- Set Pressure Cooker to Slow Cooker and cover. Let cook for 3 to 4 hours or until apples are soft.
- When finished cooking, mash with a potato masher to get desired texture.
