3 pounds apples such as Honeycrisp or Pink Lady
1 teaspoon cinnamon (or 2 cinnamon sticks)
1 ½ cups water
2 thin lemon slices
¼ teaspoon salt
- Peel and core apples (I prefer to leave the skin on a few of them because I like the taste and texture). Cut apples into approximately 1-inch cubes.
- Add all ingredients to pot and turn heat on high. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes or until the apples have softened significantly.
- Stir frequently, making sure that the apples are not sticking to the bottom of the pot. Add more water if necessary. Remove lemon slices and cinnamon sticks.
- Mash with a potato masher or use a food processor for a smoother consistency. Serve warm or at room temperature.
