Makes about 2 cups

2 apples
1/2 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon flour
Pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 lemon

Peel apples, remove core, and chop into 1/2 inch pieces. Melt butter in a medium-sized saucepan. Add apples and sugar. Allow too cook over a high heat for one minute, stirring occasionally. Add flour and cook for two minutes, stirring occasionally. Add salt, cinnamon, and lemon juice.
Reduce heat and cover, allowing the apples to break down. Cook for 15 minutes.

The resulting applesauce will be chunky. If you want a smooth applesauce, force through a mesh sieve or food mill.

Cool and serve.
