  • 4 medium apples assorted types and colors all quartered
  • 3 pears quartered
  • 1 orange quartered
  • 4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole cloves
  • 1 whole nutmeg
  • 2 vanilla beans
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 inches fresh ginger
  • 16 cups water more or less
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup or to taste


  1. Combine all the ingredients in the Instant Pot and stir. Cover with water until the level reaches the max fill line.
  2. Close and lock the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to “Sealing”, and cook on Manual for 25 minutes, followed by a quick release.
  3. Using a potato mashed, mash the fruit to release more of their flavors.
  4. With the Instant Pot on Saute let the cider simmer a bit longer, for about 10-15 more minutes. This step is optional if you have the time on hand.

  5. Using a fine-mesh strainer or a cheesecloth over a large bowl, strain out all of the solids, releasing as much juice as possible. Discard the solids.
  6. Stir in the desired amount of maple syrup, to taste. You can also use honey or sugar, or a zero-calorie sweetener.
  7. Serve warm or cold, garnished with cinnamon sticks.
