Adam,
What happened to your apples and what were you trying to make? Did they foam all over or what?

A smaller cooker may be the way to go. We used to have a small one we used with a Svea single burner gas stove for cooking in the mountains in the winter. I don't remember the brand, but there are smaller ones out there. I have two. A six or seven quart and an aluminum one that is about 2 quarts.

My small one is a Hawkins....I don't remember what site I got it at. Try Google. A side note; almost every Indian household uses a pressure cooker. Their 1.5 liter cooker is around $20.00.
