3 lbs of apples (peeled and chopped, about 5 or 6 medium-sized apples)
- 1/2 lemon (juiced)
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar (optional, or use your preferred sweetener)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Once apples are chopped, all of your ingredients to a large pot and stir to combine well. Bring this mixture to a boil on medium-high, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover the pot for 20-30 minutes, or until apples have completely softened and reduced.
- Turn off the heat and allow your apples to cool for about 10 minutes. Once apples are cooled, pour the mixture into a blender one cup at a time and blend until it reaches desired consistency. It is better to do small batches in order to avoid messes. If no blender is available, you can also mash your cooked apples with a potato masher until the chunks have gone smooth.
- Serve this warm with ice cream, or save it in the fridge to enjoy cold for up to 10 days.
