8 apples (such as Braeburn, or Jonathan), cored, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup cane sugar
1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1. Place apples in a 5-quart pot. Add sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice, and vanilla. Add just enough water to cover half the apples (add less water for a thicker sauce).

3. Hand-blend or mash apples to desired consistency. Serve warm or cold.
