Martha developed this recipe when she discovered that lemon juice reacts with red-skinned apples and turns them pink. Use the reddest apples you can find and adjusts the amount of sugar according to the sweetness of the apples.

  • Place the apples, sugar, and 1 cup water in a heavy saucepan. Cover pot, and let simmer over low heat, about 30 minutes, or until the apples break down to a saucelike consistency.

  • Remove pot from heat, uncover, and allow apples to cool slightly. Using a rubber scraper, gently push apples through a food mill or wire sieve. Discard the skins. Refrigerate until ready for use.
