Peel apples. Quarter, core and chop them into large chunks. Add to a pot lemon juice, sugar, and water. Stir to combine and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover and reduce to medium-low heat. Let simmer for approx. 30 min., or until apples are tender and nearly falling apart.
Remove from heat. Blend applesauce until smooth, or chunky - if that's what you prefer, using an immersion blender. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. Enjoy warm or cold with pancakes, ice cream, goat cheese, or even pork chops!
