Apple Butter is one of those confusing foods. Butter has nothing to do with this delicious sweet condiment, although it does make it sound enticing.

One of the things I love about that recipe is that it slow cooks all day and you can TELL. So you’d maybe think that that same simmered-all-day flavor would be hard to achieve any other way, but guess what! Making apple butter in an Instant Pot is just as yummy, because INSTANT POT = MAGIC.

The ingredients go into the pot, seal it up and let it do its thing. Use a potato masher or immersion blender to blend it up for a smooth consistency.

Enjoy this simple fall treat you can enjoy for breakfast or as a snack.
