Okay, so it’s not exactly a bumper crop, maybe 25 apples total between our two container-grown trees, but it’s our little harvest, and we’re proud of it. The apples taste really good and have that great crisp sound when you bite into them. They also make a nice applesauce.
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cinnamon stick
Rinse the apples in water and dry. Do not peel. Cut into quarters and core. Add apples to a heavy pot with orange juice and cinnamon stick. Cover the pot and cook over medium heat till the apples are soft. Remove cinnamon stick. Run through a mill (or press through a fine mesh strainer). Serve warm.
