This recipe comes from Skip Hellewell. Any medium-size apples can be used.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Peel and quarter apples. Boil apples until tender, about 12 minutes.
Drain apples, and return to pot. Mash apples until chunky or smooth, depending on your preference. Stir in orange juice, sugar, and cinnamon. Sweeten with more sugar or season with more cinnamon if desired. Serve warm or cold.
Applesauce can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.
