  1. Peel and core the apples, then cut them into chunks.
  2. Place the apples in a large nonreactive saucepan, and add the lemon juice and water. Stir in the sugar.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low.
  4. Cover the pot and cook for 30 minutes or until the apples are soft.
  5. Remove the mixture from the heat and add the cinnamon and raisins, if desired.
  6. Stir lightly for a chunky sauce and rigorously for a smooth sauce.
  7. Tip: For a pink applesauce, use red apples and leave the skins on. Once the apples are soft, you can strain out the skins or lift them from the sauce with a fork.
