  • 10 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar (sometimes I use less depending on how sweet I want it!)
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter, optional


Place apple slices in a large dutch oven, and toss with lemon juice. Add water Simmer on low for 1 hour and stir occasionally to avoid burning. Once apples break down, stir in brown sugar. I like to do this a bit at a time and taste test. Some apples are sweeter and need less than others. Finish with a pinch of salt and butter (optional) to balance the sweetness, stir and enjoy!
