I've done yogurt too. We're DF so it's a money saver. I've only had my IP for 2 months. I'm interested in hearing from others. You can also do fresh veggies to steamed in 1-2 minutes.

Default Re: Instant pot!

I've done soups where I've had to do a couple different stages of pressure cooking but it's never been 40 minutes to get back up to pressure! That seems a little longer than usual.... How long are you leaving the pot open between cookings?

When I have to do more than one stage, I have everything all prepped so the moment it comes off pressure, I simply add then put it back up to pressure. So the stuff inside barely has time to cool down so it usually only takes minutes to get back up to pressure.

Another thing you can do in between is use the sautee feature to keep the contents hot which will make the back up to pressure time frame quicker.

See that delicious spaghetti sauce? I made it in my instant pot with this recipe:
https://thisoldgal.com/pressure-cooker-spaghetti-sauce/

It was the best ever- and fast! (I added veggie meatballs instead of the sausage because the family I was cooking for is vegan)

I think I might like this pot after all.

Default Instant pot!

Yes, I think the wine is pretty important to the recipe. I let it continue to sauté a little after adding the wine to make sure the alcohol was evaporated, since I was giving it to kids and all.

I skipped the fennel though, since I wasn't using sausage I thought it might taste out of place.

I don't know much about sulfites. Maybe a small amount of balsamic vinegar instead? Unless that also has sulfites. Sorry I'm no help.

I've made IP spaghetti sauce without the wine and it's still delicious.

I didn't follow a recipe per say but it was fairly close to the one linked above.... I used my own garden tomatoes as the basis.

It turned out really good.

I want to make a batch of black beans today. I have them soaking now. Some will go in taco soup and some will be taco filling for another day. Any tips?

Leave plenty of time for the IP to naturally decompress rather than use the vent. I hate the water spraying everywhere. If you vent it, water sprays out rather than steam.
