COOKING THE APPLES
Cut up the apples and the pear into pieces approx the size of a small strawberry. Leave the skin on. (Don't use the cores and/or any seeds .. just the flesh and skin).
Put the pieces into a pan deep enough to fill with water up to the top of the apple and pear pieces.
Bring the pot to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover.
Let this simmer until the apples are soft. This usually takes about 45 minutes. Stir occasionally.
When the apples pieces are soft enough, I usually pour off some of the water from the pan into the sink. You certainly won't need most of it .. maybe just a half-cup or so when all is said and done.
BLENDING THE APPLE SLICES
Transfer some apples pieces to a food processor and blend. Be careful not to transfer too much water to the food processor or your apple sauce will be too watery (I use a strainer here).
Blend in batches. If the sauce is too thick, add a couple of TBSP of water from the cooking pot to the food processor and blend again.
Once blended, transfer the sauce to a bowl and repeat the blending step until you're out of cooked apple slices.
Stir in the cinnamon (to taste) and serve.
NOTES, TIPS, TRICKS, HINTS, ETC:
The number of apples depends on the season. Peak season, honeycrisp apples can be huge... so you may only need six. Off-season, they can be really small, so you might need a dozen. It totally varies, but eight is a good baseline from which to begin.
You can coarsely chop the apples and the pear .. it just takes a little longer to cook them.
