  • If you want even more fall flavor, add a few pinches of cinnamon and nutmeg on top of your apple crisp just before serving.
  • When picking a maple syrup, try to find an authentic bottle that has real maple flavor. That super sticky sweet factory-made stuff won't have as much flavor.
  • Be sure to follow the specific Instant Pot instructions for the best results!
