Directions:
Core apples and cut into eighths. Place in pot or slow cooker. Add cinnamon, water and both sugars. Mix together. Cook in slow cooker 4 1/2 hours on low OR cook on stove top for 2 hours on medium-low heat. Check and stir regularly. If apples are dry, then add more water. Once cooking is complete, put through a food mill and discard any skins. If mixture is not thick enough, then return to pot and cook over medium-high heat until rich color appears and texture is thicker (approx 20-40 minutes). Add lemon juice and mix. Fill sterile jars and process in water bath canner for 25 minutes.
