Fall is coming my friends and with it comes apples! This Instant Pot Sugar Free Apple Butter has an amazing flavor!

Apples are naturally sweet on their own. It just makes sense to not add any more sugar, right? With this Instant Pot Sugar-Free Apple Butter recipe, you’ll love how the natural sweetness stands completely on its own.

Although this recipe doesn’t call for sugar, it does, however, call for molasses. But we’re talking about a dab of molasses when you consider you’re cooking 5 pounds of apples!
