Delicious to the palate and a wonderful side dish

1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1 Place apples, water, sugar, lemon juice, ginger, lemon zest, and cinnamon in 2-quart saucepan and bring to a boil.
2 Lower heat to a simmer, partially cover, and cook 20 minutes. Mash with potato masher or fork and cook, uncovered, 5 to 10 minutes longer until thick.

Not a NESTLÉ®-tested recipe.
