8 cups chopped peeled tart cooking apples,
(about 3-1/2 pounds) 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Place all ingredients in a large saucepan or Dutch oven. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 30-40 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove from the heat; mash apples (a potato masher works well) until sauce is desired consistency. Serve warm or cold.
