- apples. I used 4 Gravensteins, which made plenty of sauce
- pinch of salt, about an eighth teaspoon per apple
- lemon juice (about half a lemon was right for my 4 apples)
- a bit of lemon zest (optional)
- cinnamon (optional)
- nutmeg (optional)
Step 1: Chop the apples
Step 2: Cook the apples
Now you will mash the apples with a potato masher (or a blender, or food mill, or strainer, or whatever you have). You may need to pour out some of the water first; you don't want too much water at this point.
Looks like applesauce, doesn't it? If it's a little thin for your taste, put it back in the pot and simmer a bit longer.
