Author Joy in Every Season


  • 4-5 large crisp apples granny smith or pippin are great choices
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon to sprinkle on top before serving


  • Wash, peel, core, and slice apples.
  • Add water, sugar, cinnamon sticks, and sliced apples to med sauce pan over med/high heat.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Cover pot and simmer until apples are tender (approx 15 minutes).
  • Drain any excess liquid (if there is any). Remove cinnamon sticks.
  • Mash with potato masher until desired consistency (I like some chunks left in mine, but feel free to make it smoother).
  • Sprinkle with additional cinnamon.
