How to Steam Apples in an Instant Pot

Steamed apples are a delicious and healthy snack! Using an Instant Pot is a great way to quickly and easily steam your apples with minimal effort. Here’s how:

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

You’ll need an Instant Pot, apples, a steamer basket (or something to use as a trivet), and a liquid like water or apple cider.

Step 2: Prepare the Apples

Peel and core the apples, and cut them into ½ inch pieces. Place them in the steamer basket and set aside.

Step 3: Cook the Apples

Pour a cup of water or apple cider into the Instant Pot. Place the steamer basket with the apples in the Instant Pot. Pressure cook for 3 minutes. Quick release the pressure and remove the steamer basket with the cooked apples. Let cool before serving.

Tips for Perfectly Steamed Apples

  • Don’t overfill the steamer basket – the apples need room to move around.
  • If you don’t have a steamer basket, use a silicone trivet in the bottom of the Instant Pot instead.
  • Add a tablespoon of your favorite sweetener or spice to the liquid before cooking.

And that’s it – you’ll have sweet and delicious steamed apples ready in a jiffy. Enjoy!
