These delicious, cinnamon scented apples are cooked on the stove top and make a great topping to my granola. Save some of the cooking liquid to use the next time you make oatmeal!
3 lbs of firm apples (Johnathan or Honeycrisp) peeled, cored and diced
1-2 cinnamon sticks
Squeeze of lemon juice from ½ a lemon
A splash of apple cider if you have some
2 cups of water
