Cut apples into quarters (about 2-inch chunks).

Squeeze lemon juice over mixture.

Fill saucepan with water and bring to a boil.

Add apple slices. Cover saucepan almost all the way (leaving lid cracked open about 1 inch).

Simmer the apples until they are the consistency you like (between 10 and 20 minutes).

Season with cinnamon and nutmeg, if desired.
