Dipped into the lemon-water, and then drained 1/4 cup water
Place the apples and water in a microwave save container, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for 15 minutes. Stir and mash on the apples to break them up a bit.
Microwave for 5-10 minutes longer until the applesauce is the consistency you like. Sprinkle on 1 to 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and a sprinkling of cinnamon- both sugar and cinnamon are to taste.Stir, cool and refrigerate.
