  • 3 lbs. apples the sweeter the apple the better
  • 1.5 cups apple cider no added sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • A big slice of lemon peel


  • Peel, core, and cut apples into hearty chunks (about 8 pieces).
  • Place apples, cider, cinnamon and lemon peel into a medium to large heavy bottom pot. Turn heat to high and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer for 25-35 minutes, stirring occasionally to help break down the apples.
  • Shut off the heat and use the back of a wooden spoon to break down apples to desired consistency. Store in airtight containers in the fridge.
  • Enjoy!
