This recipe for instant pot applesauce is ridiculously easy for those of us with an instant pot. It’s so easy that its only ONE ingredient. I normally would say that is an anomaly here on the blog, but I did happen to make a one ingredient cashew cream sauce that broke the one ingredient record.
This recipe was strangely born out of my desire to make my own ketchup. Since I was on a Whole30 at the time, I needed something that would add density and sweetness to it but not any sugar, obviously. Because I was already at it, it didn’t seem like too much of a chore to make applesauce since it had the perfect taste and texture.
