    Jenny, this recipe sounds lovely. Do you think the apple stewing phase could be done in the Instant Pot, and if so how long would you cook for?

      Yes it could. I do 2 mins HP with NPR for stewed apples. Remember you won’t get any evaporation so may need to reduce the liquid to about 75ml.

    Hi Jenny. This looks great. Do you have TM instructions for this?
