3 pounds apples (10 to 11 apples)
5 cups water -- approximately
3 cups sugar

Wash fruit; remove stem and blossom ends. Do not pare or core. Cut apples into small chunks. Place in large kettle or Dutch oven. Add enough of the water just to cover. Cover and bring to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer till apples are soft, 20-25 minutes.
