Ingredients

3 pounds apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch chunks

1 pound light brown sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon allspice, preferably freshly ground

Directions

  1. Place the apples in a large, heavy-bottomed pot over low heat. Cook, uncovered, for 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. Add the brown sugar and spices; continue cooking over low heat, stirring occasionally, until very thick, about 30 minutes more. To test for doneness, place a spoonful of the mixture on a white plate and let sit for 20 seconds. If a ring of liquid forms around the apples, there is still too much liquid in the mixture. Continue cooking and testing until no ring forms.
