Lemon Juice Honeycrisp Apples Dark Brown Sugar Ground Cinnamon Maple Syrup (Optional) Water Cornstarch
Place one tablespoon of lemon juice into a large bowl. Peel each apple and remove the seeds and core. Cut each apple into four pieces and slice each piece of apple with a sharp paring knife. Add the apple slices to the bowl of lemon juice, tossing them to cover with juice.
Add the apple slices with the lemon juice into the Instant Pot. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon and maple syrup if using to the Instant Pot. Toss the apple slices with a spoon. In a small bowl mix the cool water with the cornstarch until lump free. Pour into the Instant Pot and stir to combine well.
Place the lid on the Instant Pot and make sure the valve is in the sealing position. Press the manual button and set the time to 5 minutes for apples that are crisp and 10 minutes for apple slices that are softer. Once the Instant Pot has finished pressure cooking allow the steam to release naturally for 5 minutes.
Push the valve to the venting position to allow any steam to escape. Open the Instant Pot allowing the heat and any steam to escape away from your face or hand. Mix the Instant Pot Cinnamon Apples and serve.
