  • 12 oz cranberries
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 medium apple peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 3/4 cup pure maple syrup


  • Place the cranberries, orange juice, chopped apple, and maple syrup in the Instant Pot. Turn the knob to Sealing, and set the pot on Manual for 3 minutes at high pressure. After the pot comes to pressure and the 3 minutes of cook time have elapsed, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes. Then turn the knob to Venting to let the remaining pressure release (if is hasn't already).
  • Remove the top and mash the cranberry sauce with a wooden spoon or a potato masher. Press the Saute button and heat briefly to thicken (1 to 2 minutes, or to taste). The cranberry sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.
