I like to make this almost as much for the fragrance it gives off while it cooks as for its delicious end results. I prefer a less sweet applesauce and use only ¼ cup sugar. If you like it sweeter, add more sugar.

  • 3 pounds large cooking apples, such as Granny Smith or Rome Beauty, peeled, cored, and diced

  • ½ cup apple juice or water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
