Instant Pot Maple Apple Cider

Instant Pot Homemade Apple Cider | Fresh homemade apple cider in less than 30 minutes. This is insanely good and you have to try it. |

I used a recipe from Half Baked Harvest and modified it slightly for use in the Instant Pot.  If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you could make this on the stove top or in a slow cooker.

  • Prep Time: 10
  • Cook Time: 30
  • Total Time: 40 minutes


23 pounds of apples, halved (you can leave seeds in and peels on)

1 orange, quartered

1 pomegranate, quartered

4 cinnamon sticks

1/4 cup maple syrup


Add the apple, pomegranate, orange, cinnamon sticks and maple syrup to your Instant Pot insert.  Add water to immerse the apples and such.

Set the Instant Pot to high pressure and set the timer for 10 minutes.

Quick release the pressure and mash up the fruit a bit.

Set the Instant Pot to high pressure for another 10 minutes.

Either quick release the pressure or allow it to slow release.

Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl to cool, if you are not using immediately.

Once you strain the cider,  you can pour it  back into the pressure cooker and keep it on the warm setting to use warm.


If you want to make in a slow cooker, add all ingredients and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
