  • 2 pounds Cortland apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 22/3 cups water
  • 1/3 cup pomegranate or orange juice
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup brown sugar (depending on sweetness of apples)
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds (optional)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoon lemon juice (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)


  1. Place apples in a medium saucepan. Add water, juice and cinnamon stick. Cook over medium heat about 20 minutes or until apples are soft. Add more water during cooking if apples are not covered. Drain well and remove cinnamon stick.
