  • 1 lb apples
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • Core and chop the apples. Add the apples to the Instant Pot along with lemon juice and sugar. Stir and let sit for 5-10 minutes to draw out the juices from the apples.
  • Cover the Instant Pot with the lid and hit ‘Pressure Cook’ or ‘Manual’ for 5 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, followed by manual pressure release.
  • Once the pressure has released and the valve has dropped, open the lid of the Instant Pot.
  • Hit ‘Saute’ function and cook the jam for 12-15 minutes until it thickens to a jam-like consistency. Using a spatula, stir the jam at intervals to prevent it from sticking to to bottom of the pot. While the jam is cooking, you can use a masher to break down the chunks of apples and make the jam smoother.
  • Once the jam is cooked, switch off the Instant Pot and allow the jam to cool completely. The jam will thicken further on cooling.
  • Transfer to a sterilized, clean jar and store in the refrigerator or freezer.
