What you will need:
- sweet apples, 4 (Gala and/or McIntosh)
- Fresh lemon juice, 2 tbsp
- 1/4 cup water
Cut apples into quarters (about 2-inch chunks).
Squeeze lemon juice over mixture.
Fill saucepan with water and bring to a boil.
Add apple slices. Cover saucepan almost all the way (leaving lid cracked open about 1 inch).
Simmer the apples until they are the consistency you like (between 10 and 20 minutes).
Season with cinnamon and nutmeg, if desired.
