This applesauce is delicious and so easy to make! Use any type of apple – as long as they are fresh and firm.
This is an autoimmune paleo-friendly recipe, and makes a great snack or a side to any meat dish.
As far as to peel the apples or cook the peels, I like using the peels as they have extra nutrients. However, if you are digestively challenged, you could make this with peeled apples. Enjoy!
Serves: 5-6 cups
3 pounds firm apples (sweet or tart), cored and cut into chunks
1 cup water
1 lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
¼ teaspoon sea salt
Place the apple chunks, water, lemon juice, ginger, and sea salt in the bottom of your Instant Pot and stir to combine. Close and lock the lid and cook on Manual High Pressure for 4 minutes.
When the timer goes off, promptly use an oven mitt to quick-release the pressure (this is necessary to prevent burning). Turn off the warming function and remove the lid. Allow to cool for 10 or more minutes.
When the mixture is cool enough to safely handle, transfer to a blender or food processor and blend until desired consistency is reached.
Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
