Is it necessary to use an Instant Pot? 

Of course not, you can prepare your Apple Butter using a stovetop as well.

As for me, I love my Instant Pot since it saves me a lot of time. I also feel relief while cooking in it as I don't have to keep hovering around.

How to serve?

    You recipe is great. Unfortunately my wife said it wasn't enough to share with some of her friends. How do you suggest I double or triple the recipe and cooking time please.

    1. Thanks!! This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled, as long as it fits below the maximum fill line. The cooking time will remain the same.

    Very easy, happy happy not to have to hover over a pot. Notes: I used my own Parkway apples, which are about the size of golf balls, so I had to guesstimate how much per batch. Decided to fill to halfway on pot, worked well. In future, I'd suggest specifying apples by weight, cored. Don't know why, but the recipe still made more apple sauce than apple butter. Thanks.

    1. That makes sense, thank you for your feedback! I will keep that in mind. And I'm glad you liked the recipe!
