Chop the apples into quarters. I cubed them into chunks. No need to peel or core or deseed.
Add these to the Pressure cooker. Add 3 tbsp of water to the fruits.
Pressure cook high for about 10 minutes. I use an Indian style Pressure cooker with whistles and I cooked them for 4 whistles (takes the same amount of time, 10-12 minutes). I let it sit to let the pressure fall by itself but you can do a quick release by placing it under running water
See the beautiful pinkish tinge thanks to Quinces? :). I mashed it with a Potato masher
I placed a big saucepan under my colander and poured the pulped fruits to the colander.
I kept mashing and pushing the fruits to the bottom and side of the colander in quick circles.
The idea was to squeeze out the sauce through the holes of the colander to the pan below.
See all that beautiful applesauce? You can at this point do a taste test. If you are planning to add the sweetener and/or spices, simmer the sauce for 5-6 minutes after the addition. Cool and then store. Mine were naturally sweet hence did not add any sweetener. I did not add any spices either.
The seeds and the skin are left in the colander.
