This recipe makes approximately 10-12 cups or 2 medium trays depending on apple size*
- Rinse and quarter your apples (you can leave skins on or peel)
- Add apples to instant pot, crock pot or pan to boil
- Add 2 cups of water to the bottom of instant pot (if using crock pot or boiling you will require more water
- Add cinnamon and sweetener (some apples do not need sweetener and some can be on the sour side) ****this can also be done after they are cooked
- Set instant pot for 6 min on high pressure and cook and instant release when done (if boiling or using a crock pot, cook apples until they are tender enough to put into a blender or food processor)
- Add apples and some water into a blender and blend until you reach your desired texture. Slowly add the cooking water back in if needed
- I typically blend ½ and then adjust my flavor. You can add additional cinnamon and sweetener if needed
- Pour applesauce onto a parchment paper lined tray (this gets sticky!)
- Use tray dividers in the 40 portion setting for applesauce cubes
- Due to the thickness of the sauce, make sure all trays are warm when the cycle is done. If they are not, add more time until they are warm
- Store Appropriately (See Tips and Tricks for storage help)
Another option for more flavor is adding FD fruit powder to the applesauce. I used strawberry, but I think peach would be awesome or really any other fruit flavor would work
My cycle time was 37 hours for medium and 25.8 KWh used
Rehydration:2 divider cubes (I made 40 sections per tray) or 6 grams of fd material needs 3 tbsp water (less water, making a thicker sauce could make this a spread for toast)
* Large Tray = 8 Cups/tray Medium = 6 Cups/Tray Small = 4 Cups/Tray
Cycle times & rehydration for reference only. Your results may vary.
