Start out with a bunch of apples. The recipe I used calls for 4 apples, but I three-times-ed the ingredients (thriced-it?!). The apples I used were the Jonathan variety. Peel and large dice them.
Add about 3/4 c. of water, 1/4 c. sugar and 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon for every 4 apples you use. I will scale back the sugar by about half next time as it was much sweeter than the girls are used to eating and I don't think it needed quite that much sugar.
Cook covered at medium heat for 20-25 minutes, or until the apples are tender.
Let cool, then mash till you reach your desired consistency. Feed it to your kids and watch them swoon. It happened in my home. It could happen in yours. This will last in the fridge for a couple days, so if you thrice your recipe like I did, share it with some friends or put it in the freezer to save for another day. Pork chops, anyone?
