    Yield: 2 cups

    6-7 large apples

    1-1/4 cups brown sugar

    1/2 cup water


    Peel, core, and quarter the apples discard the peels and cores. Combine the apple in a heavy-bottomed pot. Cover the pot and bring the to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender and process until smooth. Transfer back to the same pot. Cook the apple purée over a low flame for 1 hour, or until it has reduced and become dark and the consistency of peanut butter. Stir often to avoid scorching. Transfer to a clean jar and refrigerate.
