  • 5-6 large granny smith apples, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch

Instant Pot Instructions:

  1. Peel apples, cutting in half to remove the seeds and core. Cut into ½ inch slices and add them to a large bowl.
  2. Sprinkle apple slices with lemon juice, toss and transfer to Instant Pot.
  3. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar and maple syrup to Instant Pot. Toss mixture to combine with apples.
  4. Mix water and cornstarch in a small bowl, stirring until lump-free. Add mixture to Instant Pot and stir well to combine with apple mixture.
  5. Lock and seal Instant Pot before manually setting it to pressure cook for two minutes. Once pressure cooking is complete, do a natural pressure release for five to ten minutes.
  6. Vent any remaining steam, open Instant Pot and gently stir cooked apple mixture. Serve on your favorite dessert or side dish, and enjoy!
