Help me, quick! I'm making homemade applesauce and there's a ton of liquid??

Ok so I decided to make applesauce for my baby today.

Looked up a couple recipes and it seemed super easy. Apples, water, cinnamon and a little sugar. Got it going on the stove with the water level about 1/3 of the way up the apples, but now after cooking for awhile, there's a TON of liquid.

I'm assuming this is the apple juice cooking out but do I leave the lid on or off?? I don't want watery applesauce! And I don't want it to get dry either.

So far I've been leaving it on, but when it's almost done, I'm thinking just leave it off and let any excess liquid boil off??

Is that right??

Thanks. :)

PS Yes this is my first time making applesauce. No I'm not an idiot. I just don't want all the apples (and the forever it took to peel/core/chop them!) to go to waste. :D
