This applesauce is made in the pressure cooker and jazzed up with brandy and spices. The spices will mellow out a bit as it cools. Keeps up to 10 days in the refrigerator.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel, core, and quarter the apples.
  2. In a pressure cooker, combine all the ingredients and cook at high pressure for 2 minutes.
  3. Let pressure release naturally (it'll take 10 to 20 minutes), then remove cinnamon sticks and coarsely chop the apples; alternatively, puree the apples if you prefer a smoother texture.
  4. Taste and adjust sweetness and flavorings.
  5. Set aside to cool, then cover and refrigerate.
