1 cup water
1/4 cup sugar (or add to taste)
1. Place the peeled, cored, and quartered apples into a large pot.
2. Pour about 1 inch of water into pot to keep apples from sticking to bottom.
3. Bring to a boil on high heat, then lower the temperature, cover the pot, and maintain a low simmer for 20-30 minutes, until the apples are completely tender and cooked through.
4. Once the apples are cooked through, remove the pot from the heat. Use a potato masher to mash the cooked apples in the pot to make a chunky applesauce. For a smoother applesauce you can either run the cooked apples through a food mill, or purée them in a blender.
5. Add sugar to taste.
This applesauce is delicious either hot or chilled.
