Chop the four sides off each apple and chop the large pieces in half.
Put the chopped apple in a medium pot with the water and slices of lemon.
Bring to the boil then drop the heat to low and cover.
Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally so the apple cooks evenly.
Drain the apple and discard the lemon.
Puree in the pot with a hand blender.
