This is my Mimaw's recipe that I found in my Mom's recipe file. I remember it always being in the fridge every time I visited her and my Meemaw. My girls love cinnamon apple sauce, and I have to admit, I've never made it homemade. I've always bought Mott's, and my girls top it with a maraschino cherry. Now that I know how easy it is to make, there's no excuse not to make it more often when Granny Smith apples are in season. It sure brings back memories of my sweet Mimaw. I miss her dearly.
4-5 cups Granny Smith apples (3 very large or 6 small), peeled and sliced thin
1/4 cup white sugar
1 T brown sugar
2/3 cup water
1 tsp cinnamon
In a large sauce pan, add all ingredients and stir to coat apples. Cover with a lid and cook over low heat for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the lid and stir well to break up the apples. Cook another few minutes until the mixture is thickened. Cool to room temperature and then refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!
