What’s better than welcoming Autumn with Apples picking and delicious homemade apple treats?

I love the comforting and warm smell of apples and cinnamon fillĀ everyĀ corner of the house.

Have a bite of fresh-out-of-the-oven apple pie, with a sipĀ of comforting hot apple cider. Maybe some sweet apple crumble with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. And how can I miss the sweet, smooth &Ā thick applesauce. mmMMmm….

Instant Pot Applesauce Recipe Ingredients

This thick apple puree is delicious as a condiment or dessert, served warm or cold, as a fillingĀ or topping.

I would sneak to the fridge and scoop some when I have some sweets cravings. Keep this between you and me, ok?Ā Jacky doesn’t know about this…hehe~ šŸ˜›

OurĀ cinnamon-spiced Instant Pot Applesauce is irresistibly flavorful with a balance of savory, sweet, and slightly tart. Just the way I like my fillings for homemade apple pies.

I couldn’t stop myself from licking the spoon!
