Instant Pot Apple Cider

Egg Nog or Apple Cider? For me it’s definitely Apple Cider, especially when it’s homemade! It is so easy to make and doesn’t need all the added sugars in packaged Apple Cider, it’s sweet enough on its own! This recipe can be done in a slow cooker or stovetop if you don’t have an instant pot, just takes a few more hours that way.

Before I begin I wanted to go over a few things, for starters ALWAYS and I mean ALWAYS buy organic apples. They are one of the highest sprayed fruits and you will be soaking the skin in this recipe not peeling them. I truly cannot stress this one enough. On top of buying organic I also soak my apples in water and a splash of apple cider vinegar to remove any residue on apples skin.

After soaking for about 15 minutes go ahead and drain and rinse the apples and they are ready to use.

Also the bag I use to strain my cider after the fact is found here on amazon, I also use it for making homemade oat and almond milk.

Hope you enjoy the recipe and it becomes a family favorite like it has for us!

Instant Pot Apple Cider

4 honey crisp apples sliced
2 pink lady apples sliced
2 green apples sliced
1 orange sliced
1/2 tablespoon ground cloves
1/2 tablespoon ground allspice
3 cinnamon sticks or 1 tablespoon Cinnamon
8 cups filtered water

After washing and slicing your Apples and orange you will put them in instant pot with all the seasonings and cover with water. Close and seal instant pot and set it to manual pressure cook for 15 minutes. Keep in mind, it will take some time for it to build to right pressure so I would allow at least a full hour from start to finish.

After the 15 minute timer goes off let it sit for 15 more minutes then do a quick release. You will then mash the remaining chunks with a potato masher or big fork if you have. Then strain liquid through mesh strainer or bag linked above to separate the pulp, which I recommend using in a smoothie or baking with!

Store in fridge for 4-5 days and reheat when serving or serve immediately.

This recipe makes about 72 oz of cider! Enough for the whole family to enjoy, or it makes a great homemade gift too!
