3 lbs. apples
1 stick cinnamon (broken in two)
1/8 tsp. allspice
1/2 cup apple cider
1/4 cup water
Optional Items to Taste:
Grated zest of 1 lemon
Place the apples, cinnamon, allspice, and the liquid in your Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker. Lock the lid in place and over high heat bring to the second red ring. As soon as the second red ring is reached, immediately turn off heat and allow the pressure to drop naturally. Do not attempt to use a quick pressure-release method as the apple sauce may sputter through the vent.
Leave applesauce chunky, or puree it in a food processor. Stir in lemon zest, lemon juice, and honey to taste.
