Instructions
  1. Add the apples to the base of the pot. Pour in wine, sprinkle raisins, sugar and cinnamon powder.
  2. Close and lock the lid of the Instant Pot. Cook for 10 minutes at high pressure.
  3. When time is up, open the Instant Pot with the natural release method, disengage the “keep warm” mode or unplug the cooker and open when the pressure indicator has gone down (20 to 30 minutes).
  4. Scoop out of the pressure cooker and serve in a small bowl with lots of cooking liquid. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

Today you can find "fresh" apples in the supermarket all year long. That's because after their fall harvest apples are store in a "protective atmosphere" that keeps them from ageing. Unfortunately, this storage changes the texture of the apple and will turn it into puree' when pressure cooked. Stores are not required to tell you if an apple has been stored in these conditions or when it was harvested (for you to know if it's really fresh). The only way to tell is to carefully look at the apple stem. If it's green and flexible, then the apple is REALLY fresh and they will be perfect for this recipe. If its brown and shriveled then the apple was likely stored for up to a year before being sold - those apples are great for making apple sauce.

    I used water instead of wine and I stuffed the apples with raisins, rolled oats and cinnamon. I also didn’t add any sugar, and they were sweet enough!

    If you cut them you would have to significantly reduce the cooking time.

    It is also best to use pot-in-pot to prevent burning.

    Hi Steven,

    The note in the recipe goes over why some apples are better for pressure cooking. It recommends fresh apples, if you live in a colder climate and recently purchased apples they may have been store and not fresh.
