Instant Pot Cranberry Sauce

READY IN: 17mins
SERVES: 8-12
YIELD: 1 1/2 cups




  • Rinse the cranberries and discard any mushy berries, then add to the bowl of a 6-quart or larger Instant Pot.
  • Stir in the orange zest, orange juice, sugar, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon stick and salt until evenly combined. Lock the lid, set the vent to seal and cook on high pressure for 2 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, and then manually release any remaining pressure.
  • Open the lid carefully and give it a stir. If the cranberry sauce isn’t thick enough, turn on the sauté function and cook, stirring constantly for 1 to 2 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Keep in mind that the sauce will continue to thicken as it cools. Transfer to a bowl and serve warm or at room temperature.
