Instant Pot Cinnamon Pear Applesauce

Just a few ingredients and less than 20 minutes is all it takes to make these delicious Cinnamon Pear Applesauce in the Instant Pot!

One of our favorite fall activities is apple picking. We often go overboard with picking to be honest! I love making big batches of applesauce. The Instant Pot has been such a great addition to my kitchen and this Instant Pot® Cinnamon Pear Applesauce has become my go-to recipe! 

This super easy and versatile applesauce recipe tastes even better after a day or two. It can be enjoyed immediately, however, served alongside savory pork dishes or mixed in with cottage cheese, oatmeal or creamy Greek yogurt for breakfast.

I often send a serving with the kids in their lunch boxes too! Find some more of my favorite apple recipes!
