This is delicious and healthy – no sugar added. My kids love to have this all year round when they come home from school.
10 apples (Granny Smith and any others you have lying around), cut into chunks
2 pears, cut into chunks
1 cinnamon stick
2 teaspoons vanilla
½ cup water
Place all ingredients in a large stockpot over a low to medium flame. Simmer for about 2 hours until apples are soft, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from flame and mash with a potato masher. Store in refrigerator.
