Using a microwave really speeds this recipe up. Having Peter peel the apples makes it effortless. Once you try this, jarred applesauce just won’t ever do.



2 Macintosh apples, cored, peeled, and sliced

2 Granny Smith apples, cored, peeled, and sliced

1 cup water

½ Tbl lemon juice

½ cup sugar

½ tsp cinnamon



Mix the sugar and cinnamon together. Set aside. Mix the peeled, sliced apples, water and lemon juice in a bowl. Add the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Microwave for five minutes. Stir. Cook for five more minutes. Continue to cook in five-minute intervals until apples are tender. Use a potato masher on the apples until they reach a desired texture.
