Serves: 4


  • 4-5 fresh, crisp McIntosh apples, peeled, seeded and cut into 1" dice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons water


  1. Into a medium saucepan, add the apples, brown sugar, lime juice and water. Cover the pot tightly and heat to boiling. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 5-8 minutes, until apples are tender. Transfer to a blender or food processor and pulse 3-4 times to desired consistency. If you like it chunky, process it less -- or for uber-smooth -- pulse a few more times. Serve chilled or at room temperature.
