8 large Macintosh apples, peeled, cored, and quartered
2-1/2 cups water
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup seedless raisins


Place the apples in a large Dutch oven. Add water, sugar, and cinnamon. Set on medium – low heat and simmer until tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and puree with a rotary beater on slowest speed to the desired consistency.

Stir in the raisins. When the sauce has cooled, pour it into a glass or plastic container and store in the refrigerator. Serve either warm or cold.
