Serves: 6-8
Ingredients
  • 6 lbs. apples, peeled, cored, sliced
  • ¾ c. water (or apple cider)
  • Juice of 1 lemon (about 2 Tb.)
  • 1 Tb. ground cinnamon
  • 4 Tb. honey
Instructions
  1. Place prepped apples in a deep pan. Add water, lemon juice, cinnamon & honey and cover.
  2. Over medium heat, once the apples start to bubble (after about 5 minutes), use a large spoon to mix the apples and flavorings together (this is when the juices start coming out and it’s easier to stir).
  3. Reduce heat to low simmer and cook for another 10-15 minutes, covered.
  4. Turn off the heat and keep the pan covered. Allow the apples to sit for another 20-30 minutes (they’ll continue to steam and get softer) then serve or refrigerate.
Notes
I like McIntosh by themselves in sauce, or a mixture of Macs with Macoun, Cortland or Golden Delicious is pretty tasty, too.
