Homemade Applesauce

4 apples, peeled and cored {Pink Lady or something tart would be ideal}
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
pinch salt
juice of one lemon
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup water

Cut the apples into large chunks and put them in a heavy pot over medium heat; add the brown sugar, salt, lemon juice, cinnamon and water.
Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to low.
Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the apples are extremely soft and mushy.
Using a potato masher or fork, mash the apples together until you have an applesauce-like consistency.
{Serves 4.}
