Ingredients

7
Golden Delicious apples, peeled, chopped
1
tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2
cup granulated sugar
1/3
cup packed dark brown sugar
1
cup water
3
slices lemon peel (cut with a vegetable peeler or paring knife)
2
cinnamon sticks (3 inch)

Directions

  • 1 In 6-quart stockpot or Dutch oven, place all ingredients. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low; cook uncovered 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender.
  • 2 Remove from heat; discard lemon peel and cinnamon sticks. Let apple mixture cool slightly, about 10 minutes; puree in a food processor, blender, or mash with a potato masher. Serve warm or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Expert Tips
