Peel the apples and cut into 1-inch pieces. Place in a heavy-duty pot with cider, brown sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Bring to a boil and reduce to a rolling simmer.
Cover the pot and cook for 15 min., stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender. Remove and discard the cinnamon stick. Mash the apples using a potato masher to desired consistency.
