This side dish is one that will be loved by all, especially the children! I combined a couple of recipes and found just the perfect combination.
Start by peeling the apples. I have had many peelers throughout the years but there is only one that deserves the title of fabulous! The funny thing is that it is the cheapest one that I have ever had. I actually had a very similar peeler when I was a missionary in France. When I got home and got married I started to cook a lot more. I did not like the peeler that I received as a wedding gift. So I went out to Target and bought another one. Still it was not great. Finally I went to William Sonoma and bought two different kinds; one that was like the one in France and another that was more fancy and three times the price. The one for $3.50 won out! I always hand wash and dry them so they don’t rust. I know I sound so funny being so particular about my peeler, but…I am. So…drum roll…my peeler!
10-12 apples (any kind, I used gala) peeled, cored and chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4-1/2 cup white sugar (it depends on how sweet the apple you use is)
1 1/2 cup water
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Garnish with light brown sugar
In a saucepan, toss apples with the lemon juice. Add water, sugar, and cinnamon. Cover, and cook over medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples are soft. Allow to cool, then mash with a fork or potato masher. Serves 12
