After reading all the comments about the water, when I made this, last night, I drained the apples and put the cooked chunks in the food processor. I suspect the draining part was left out of the recipe's instructions. I added the juice of half a lemon to the cooking water, and the juice of the other half to the pulp in the processor. I used no sugar and old Granny Smiths. It was wonderful, just like that. Then I tried adding a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to a 1 cup serving, which was also wonderful.
So, just drain the cooked apples and forget about the water quantity--just use enough to cover the apples, for simmering.
