Pressure Cooker Infused Water is refreshing, healthy, and sooo versatile. Just imagine the thousands of flavor possibilities!
Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:5 minutes High Pressure
Total Time:40 minute
1 cup chopped mango
2 1 inch knobs of ginger, peeled
Peach Raspberry Lemonade
1 cup chopped peaches
1/2 cup raspberries
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 cup blueberries
zest and juice of 1 lime
1 apple, chopped
5 cinnamon sticks
Place fruit (or vegetables and herbs of your choice) in a mesh steamer basket. Set inside the pressure cooker pot. Add water to barely cover the produce, about 4-5 cups. Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position. Cook at high pressure for 5 minutes.
When cooking is complete, use a quick release.
Remove the steamer basket and discard cooked produce. Let the flavored water cool slightly than pour into a mason jar, top with a pourable lid and place in the refrigerator to chill.
Straight from the jar, the water is quite potent. I like to add 2-3 tablespoons per 8 ounces of water for just a hint of flavor; sweeten if desired
Another option: Freeze the infused water in an ice cube tray and pop them into your bottled water.
The colored frozen cubes would look amazing in a big punch bowl for a party!
If you don’t have a mesh steamer basket, this could be made directly in the pot and then poured through a strainer to filter out the produce after it’s cooked.
