DIRECTIONS

  • Peel, core and slice the apples.
  • Place apples in a large microwave-safe bowl.
  • Add in 1/4 cup water, cinnamon (start with 1/2 teaspoon) and nutmeg, if using; stir to combine.
  • Cover with heavy microwave-safe plastic wrap (leave a little side opened to allow steam to escape).
  • Microwave on HIGH power for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the bowl and stir the apples, then contine to microwave uncovered until apples are very tender (about 5-6 minutes longer).
  • Using a large fork (I use a potato masher for this) coarsley mash apples to desired texture.
  • Add in sugar to taste while the apples are still hot; mix well to combine.
  • Bring to room temperature and then refrigerate for up to two days, or freeze in plastic freezer containers.
