Place chopped apples in a medium-sized saucepan. Add lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon stick and 5 tbsp water. Mix to combine. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil.
Lower the heat and continue cooking until apples turned soft. Mix occasionally. This normally takes 15 to 20 minutes.
Remove cinnamon stick and take saucepan off the heat. Set aside to cool down.
Use a food processor or a blender to puree the cooked apples. You don’t have to puree the apples until they become smooth. If you like it with chunks, then leave some. Stop when you reach your desired texture for the applesauce.
