Servings 1


  • 5 1/2 pounds apples cored and quartered
  • 1/4 cup water or apple juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • Pinch of ground cloves
  • Sugar optional


  • Core the apples and then cut them into quarters (leave the peels on).
  • Add the apples and the water to the Instant Pot.
  • Cover and cook for 20 minutes at high pressure.
  • Naturally release pressure.
  • Puree the contents of the pot with an immersion blender (or put everything into a blender and then put the puree back into the pot).
  • Add the spices and sugar to the pot.
  • Press sauté and adjust to low. Cook uncovered for 15-45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the apple butter is as thick as you’d like it to be.
  • Store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or keep in the freezer for up to 1 mont


  • If you are not adding sugar, then the apple butter will take longer to thicken.
