Pressure Cooker Maple Cinnamon Applesauce

  • Author: Fanny Slater
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: Approximately 3 1/2 cups (about 7 servings) 1x


Our spiced pressure cooker maple applesauce is just the thing to satisfy your cinnamon craving when cooler weather comes around.


  • 2 1/2 pounds apples (about 4 large), peeled, cored, and roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (from about 1/2 lemon)
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Add the apples, apple cider, maple syrup, lemon juice, salt, and cinnamon to a 6-quart electric pressure cooker. Stir to combine.
  2. Secure the lid and set the timer to cook on high pressure for 5 minutes. Allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes, then open the valve and carefully quick-release the remaining steam before removing the lid.
  3. Mash or blend the applesauce to your desired consistency.
  4. Serve warm or transfer the applesauce to a bowl and allow it to cool completely at room temperature, then transfer to an airtight container and chill for about 2 hours to serve cold. Store leftovers in the fridge for 7-10 days.
