  1. Says Cook Time: 30 minutes
    Then it says:
    Let it cook for 15 minutes on manual “high” pressure.
    What is right ??!?

  2. The recipe states to reserve cornstarch and marmalade in step one but the step four states to add maple syrup. I’m confused. Was I suppose to reserve the maple syrup too?
