(Makes 5 to 6 cups)

  • 8 large apples
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 lemon slices
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Peel, core, and slice apples. In large saucepan, combine apples, water, and lemon. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Applesauce will be thick so add more water to reach a desired texture. Add sugar, stir and sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon. Can be served warm or chilled. Refrigerate leftovers for up to one week.
