Don’t throw out “old” or “tired” apples.  Make applesauce instead.  You can use applesauce to replace oils, sweeten a recipe naturally or just have as a snack.  
Ingredients

5 apples, cored (not peeled)

1t cinnamon

2T butter 
Directions

  1. Place all of your ingredients on the counter before turning on the InstantPot.
  2. Chop apples in medium slices. 1 apple should net you 6 cuts. Remove stem and seeds plus seed shells. If you really only have 4 minutes, cut apple into 12 chunks. Chunks should be same size.
  3. Set InstantPot to SAUTÉ.
  4. Add butter then count to 4 while it melts and add apples.  
  5. Stir butter and apples until they begin to sizzle (about a minute).
  6. Sprinkle cinnamon in and stir.
  7. Place lid on InstantPot.
  8. Reset to MANUAL mode.
  9. Timer at 4 minutes.
  10. Let pressure release naturally (if possible). If not, cut the apple chunks into equal smaller sizes (so one apple getting you 12 cuts for example).

I use a dry erase marker to indicate when I make a dish.
5 apples made this much chunky applesauce.

Apple sauce can be chunky or smoother. It can be used to replace oils in recipes and also sweeten food naturally.  
For a less chunky applesauce, place finished apples in a blender and pulse until you get the consistencies you are looking for.
Store in a air tight container.
Use before 3-4 days – it if lasts that long!
