- 6 apples, organic or fresh picked sweet apples are the best apples to use,
- 1 cup water
- 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp sugar, optional
- 1/4-1 tsp cinnamon, optional
Peel and core the apples and cut them into quarters. Place them in an Enamel sauce pan with the water and lemon juice, then bring to go a boil. Turn the heat down slightly, and simmer for 30 minutes. Take off heat and stir in the sugar and cinnamon, if using. Mash the apples in the enamel pan until you have applesauce.
