  • 12 cups of sliced apples peel on sour apples like Granny Smith or home grown on the tree are best!
  • 3 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 3/4 cup of salted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup of apple juice
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the cinnamon, pie spice, brown sugar and cornstarch until it's all mixed in completely.
  2. Sprinkle over the top of the apples. Pour the melted butter and apple juice over top of the mixture. Stir until everything is coated. Place in the instant pot.
  3. To pressure cook, use the high pressure option and cook for 3 minutes high pressure for thin apples, 5 minutes for medium apples and 8 minutes for very thick apples (if you use an apple slicer, these are the thick apples.) Manually quick release and either keep on
  4. Use the "keep warm" button or serve right away.
