Step 1

Bring all ingredients except vanilla to a boil in a 6-qt. saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to low; cook, covered, until apples have begun to break down, 10-15 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture has reduced by a third and the sauce is thick and amber-colored, 1-1½ hours more. Stir in vanilla extract and serve warm, or cool completely and refrigerate.
