Quick Applesauce - no added sugar

Peel and core apples. 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 about 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.
