  • 5 large Rome apples; peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1 cup apple cider, I used Trader Joe's
  • 1/8 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger


  1. In a medium saucepan combine the cider, brown sugar and spices and stir to mix well. Set heat on low to melt the sugar and warm the cider while you prep the apples.
  2. Peel, core and slice apples into uniform slices, about 1/4 inch thick. Add the apples into the warmed cider mixture and turn the heat up to medium.
  3. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally for 20-25 minutes until the apples begin to fall apart when pressed with the back of your spoon.
  4. When cooked through you can mash with a fork or potato masher for a chunkier paste or allow to cool slightly and blend in the food processor until smooth.
