Hi there friends! Are you in the mood for fall? Do you love pumpkin? Do you like Applesauce? How about we combine them and lets see how it tastes!

How to make Pumpkin Apple sauce in the Pressure Cooker.

Today I am sharing how to make pumpkin applesauce in the Pressure Cooker. I of course used my Ninja Foodi.  You can check out what I have made so far in my Ninja Foodi HERE.

This recipe will work the same in any pressure cooker you have. I have made applesauce in my Instant Pot many times. You can find that recipe HERE.

I just get so giddy this time of year with all things Pumpkin. I love the scent, the taste, decorating with pumpkins, you name it, I am a pumpkin fanatic. I can’t forget my weekly drive thru at Dunkin’ Donuts either. I skip the donuts and go for an iced Pumpkin coffee. It is so delicious!

Pumpkin Applesauce in the Ninja Foodi

This recipe is super easy. Most everything you may have on hand already, like cinnamon, cloves, pumpkin pie spice, etc. I always have the basics on hand for whipping up something fallish. I usually buy four cans at a time of pumpkin puree this time of year when I go food shopping. You just never know what you will be in the mood to whip up. Last year, I had some over ripened bananas, a cake mix, and pumpkin puree. As luck would have it, I could use all three to bake a Weight Watchers Pumpkin cake HERE. It was so delish! There is a difference between pumpkin pie and pumpkin puree. Please be sure you check you have the right pumpkin whatever your recipe may call for.

I can eat this for breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack! It was just that good.  I love to gift little home-made treats to family, friends and neighbors on occasion. This would be an absolute perfect holiday gift idea of home-made in a mason jar.

I even made us mason jar labels. Notice how they go with the spurtles:) I did that on purpose of course. I am all about the coordinating gift ideas. You can find the bamboo spurtle set HERE on Amazon. They even come in a beautiful linen canvas bag for safe keeping. I actually like to display mine because I use them every day. They are especially great in the Ninja Foodi, and won’t scratch the ceramic liner pot.

How to make Pumpkin Apple sauce in the Pressure Cooker


  • 3 Lbs Fuji, green or Gala apples
  • 15 oz can Pumpkin puree
  • 2 Whole Cinnamon sticks
  • 4-5 Whole cloves
  • 1 Cup Apple juice
  • Just a pinch Salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice


  • First peel and remove core from apple. Cut in quarter sizes. Add one cup of apple juice to the pot, and one cup of water. Place apples in the pot. Sprinkle cinnamon, pumpkin spice, a pinch of salt, add cloves, and cinnamon sticks to the pot as well.Dump the Pumpkin puree on top of apples. Lightly add more cinnamon and pumpkin spice. Drizzle with honey if you would like for a little extra natural sweetness. It really doesn’t need it.
  • Set pot on High Pressure for 2-3 minutes. Once pressure cooker is complete, do a quick release. Be careful when opening the pot, always away from your face. Mix well, and use wooden spoon to mash the apples down some. If you like it chunky, mash lightly. If you like your applesauce with no chunks, remove from pot and use immersion mixer. ENJOY!

You can PRINT your mason jar labels HERE.

Be sure your printer is on High Quality print setting. These will turn out beautiful and so custom looking. Print, cut around black line and stick on top of mason jar lid, tie a ribbon around the mason jar, and there you have a wonderful home-made gift of sweetness. Find the recipe down below on how to make pumpkin applesauce in the Ninja Foodi. Enjoy!~
