  • Instant Pot


  • fresh lemon juice from half a lemon
  • 6 apples peeled, cored and sliced into 1/4 pieces (use a variety of sweet and tart varieties)
  • 1 cup apple cider substitute apple juice or water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • Squeeze the lemon juice into a large bowl half full of cool water. Add the apples to the bowl as you work. Strain apples and add to the pot. Add the cider/juice, sugars, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Press the apples down so they are fully covered in liquid.
  • Place the cover on the pot and set timer to 3 minutes on high pressure (pressure cook setting). It will take the IP around 17 minutes to build up pressure before it begins cooking.
  • When cooking time is done, do a quick release. Remove the cover and let the mixture cool. Use immediately in your favorite apple pie recipe, refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 6 months!
