I'm about to try garlic mashed potatoes, and just made butternut squash soup in the pot, using instructions for another squash soup. It was a little thin, but I don't mind that - I'm not always keen on thickened soup, but I might try making it using the regular soup function next time, rather than pressure cooking for ten minutes.

"Instant pot"
So I'm guessing that has something to do with having an immediate " food high"

(Joke for the foodie addict)

I didn't even think of that. I've never smoked the stuff. I was just searching the library website for IP books, and the first thing that came up was a book written by "the pot princess", and two more links for the movie "The Family Stone". I found books under pressure cooking.

Teasel, I don't want to derail the thread and I'll edit this out later.

I just wanted to suggest that you try marijuana to help your stomach issues. I've experienced the medicinal benefits firsthand when I was extremely sick with Lupus and bedridden for 9 months years ago. I weighed only 100 pounds at 5'8", and could barely eat due to extreme nausea and stomach pain. All the medications I was on only made matters worse, but marijuana was instant relief and helped with my appetite. I've also seen the instant pain relief in 2 cancer patients that I've known personally. My mom's best friend was moaning in agony she was in so much pain, I cried seeing her like that. She took a few puffs off a joint, and was relaxed and laughing just minutes later. We spent the rest of the day at the beach. I was stunned to see that! I doubt she would've even gotten out if bed that day without the marijuana. It has amazing pain relieving benefits, but it's largely stigmatized unfairly.

Thank you, Bluejay. I saw your post earlier in the year, and meant to respond. I know of people who have been helped by marijuana, or the oil, but I've always been afraid to try it (and I don't think it's legal here in Ohio). I have a friend who is helped by it, too.

You aren't derailing. I appreciate your advice.

The easiest thing to do with this, is to throw in a box of pasta, a jar of sauce, and water (enough to fill the jar). Set it to manual, use half the time on the box for cooking, and let the pressure naturally release for a little while once it's finished. The pasta absorbs the water, and the sauce also cooks into it a little bit. Perfect one-pot meal (although not the healthiest).

I sear ribs that have been rubbed with a rub mixture, cover them with sauce and a bit of water, and cook them for 30 minutes. Then I thicken the sauce a bit in the oven. Use less time if you want the meat to stay on the bone.

Tried to cook a whole chicken, and it almost caved in. I prefer it cooked in the oven.

Peel potatoes and cook them within 4-18 minutes, depending on what you're doing. Unpeeled for 18 minutes, whole, but with holes poked in them, and then popped under the grill to harden the skin a bit (jacket potatoes). Four minutes on manual, is usually enough to soften them for mashed potatoes, or "boiled".

Eggs + peeled and chopped potatoes on for 5 minutes, resting the eggs on the potatoes. Leave 5 minutes NPR, then put the eggs into freezing cold water. Ready for potato salad.

Broth in a few hours, from bones.

I'm forgetting things, but I like it. I don't *love* it, but then I'm depressed, and part of the reason I asked for it, was that I thought it would make things easier for mum.
