3-4 lbs cooking apples, peeled, cored and quartered
juice of 1 lemon
1 cinnamon stick
up to 1/2 cup sugar (I use 1/2 brown and 1/2 white), depending on the sweetness of apples
3/4-1 cup water, depending on the juiciness of apples
1/2 tsp salt
Place all the ingredients into a large saucepan. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, over medium heat until tender about 20-30 minutes. Remove from the heat. Discard the cinnamon stick. Depending on how you like your applesauce, mash with a spoon, potato masher, or pass it through a food mill. Serve warm or chilled. Enjoy!
