After about half an hour, the apples should be cooked down to almost mush. Stir in the sugars, vanilla, cayenne, and salt and cook on low for 5 minutes. Serve warm or cold. Will keep refrigerated for 1 week.
If you use really sweet apples, such as Honeycrisp, Fujis or Galas, you might find you don’t need as much sugar. I used more-tart Winesap and Liberty apples, which is why I used this amount of sugar.
