You can save time by purchasing already-trimmed wings. However, you can save some money by trimming them yourself. See the photo below for the approximate location of where to cut each whole wing. They are a little easier to trim AFTER they have been cooked. Immediately freeze tips to make chicken stock later.
NOTE: This recipe is written for fresh or thawed wings. If you are using frozen wings, add 3-4 minutes to the active cook time in the pressure cooker.
