- 8 apples - peeled, cored and shredded
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup water
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- Place shredded apples in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Sprinkle with cinnamon, then add water and cook until the apple bits become soft and mushy.
- Stir in brown sugar and mix well; if desired, top with ice cream and serve.
Variations and hints:
*To make my variation, I used 6 cups frozen apple slices and 2 cups frozen rhubarb slices.
*The original recipe calls for lots more cinnamon. Add it to your taste.
*I used frozen sliced fruit. When the fruit was soft and mushy I used a pastry cutter to cut up the apples. Maybe a potato masher would work too.
*You can probably reduce the brown sugar. It is pretty sweet. If you don't use tart apples, you won't need much sugar at all.
*It's good warm or cold.
