Can you make maple syrup in a pressure cooker?
It is twice as energy-efficient as the Crock-Pot, but not as efficient as the gas stovetop. While it is possible to finish the syrup in the Instant Pot using the sauté mode, we don’t recommend. You risk ruining your Instant Pot if you get distracted for a few minutes and let it boil beyond syrup.
