Servings: 5to 7 people as a side dish
6medium apples, such as McIntosh or Honeycrisp
1/2lemon, juiced (optional)
Chop the apples into a medium dice. Discard the core.
Place the apples in a pot with the water, salt, and cinnamon and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to medium, and cover with the lid slightly ajar. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the apples are very soft and melted. The apples should cook at a steady simmer.
Add the lemon juice, if using. Stir vigorously to emulsify everything into a sauce and taste.
Serve warm, topped with a pinch of cinnamon.
