|12||Apples, washed and cut in quarters (no need to peel or core)|
|2 tablespoons||Butter or margarine|
Put all in a large pot and simmer, stirring often. Check to maintain liquid level the first 10 minutes, and add water, if necessary, only to avoid scorching. Apples will start to add juice until, when they are cooked and mushy (about 20 minutes for a large pot). liquid will have reached top of apples. Sieve (old-fashioned type with a crank-type handle) in batches, and serve immediately (hot). My fiance was resistant to trying apple sauce with cinnamon, and had never had it hot, but when he had a taste, he went back for seconds and thirds!
A word about the apples. I prefer Granny Smiths. These are tart, crisp, green apples that hold up well with cooking. My second favorite is McIntosh. Bought in large bags or bulk, this can be a very reasonable treat this time of year in northeast USA.
