2 H. 0 Min.


10 lbs apples very ripe (any variety)
1 1/2 cups water
2 Tbsp granulated sugar (optional), or add to taste


Peel, core, and slice all of the apples.

Into a large stockpot, add 1 1/2 cups water and 2 Tbsp sugar. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil to dissolve sugar. Add all of the sliced apples, reduce heat to low, then cover with a lid and cook for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Mash apples to desired consistency, using either a potato masher, an immersion blender, or an electric hand mixer.
