Chunky Spiced Applesauce

2 lb Granny smith apples; core, peel and slice
2 lb Golden delicious apples; core, peel and slice
2 c Water
2 tb Fresh lemon juice
1/2 c sugar
1/2 ts cinnamon
1/4 ts Cardamon; (generous 1/4 tsp)

Combine all apples, water and lemon juice in heavy large Dutch oven; bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium; cover and simmer until apples are tender, about 20 minutes. Uncover and cook until mixture thickens, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes longer. Mash apples slightly with potato masher until chunky applesauce forms. Stir in sugar and spices. Cool. Add more lemon juice if desired. Transfer to bowl; cover and chill overnight. Can be made ahead and refrigerated up to 2 days.
