PRESSURE COOKER APPLESAUCE
5 medium Red Delicious Apples
5 Granny Smith Apples
2 Tsp. Cinnamon
2 Tsp. Homemade Vanilla
2 Tbls. Honey
1/2 Tsp. Sea Salt
1 Cup Water OR Organic Apple Juice
TO PREPARE: Wash, peel, core, and slice apples and put into the pressure cooker pot. Cut lemon in halve and juice the lemon onto the apples (I use a citrus squeezer). Mesure and add Cinnamon, Salt, Honey, and Homemade Vanilla. (For this recipe, I used Vanilla made with Madegasgar Bean). Pour either the Water or Organic Apple Juice over all.
TO COOK: Secure the lid on the pressure cooker, turn the valve to Pressure and set the timer to 5 minutes on High Pressure. Once cooked, release the valve to let out the steam and open the pot. SPOILER ALERT, AMAZING SMELLS ABOUND!. I stirred the hot sauce well, but left in a chunky state. You can blend with an immersion blender for smooth or runny sauce. Serve warm, or place in mason jars to refridgerate.
Just for fun: While preparing this recipe, I was reminded of how much our loving hands can do for our families, and the loving thought that went into making these few jars. One of my favorite movies is Sleepless in Seattle. In the movie, the character Sam, is explaining some of the things he loved about his deceased wife: "She could peel an apple in one long strand".
