I've tried this twice now and not managed to get it right. Can anyone help me? My sauce turns into hard caramel...what am I doing wrong?

I have done this recipe with and without the lemon juice. There was no difference. I cut my apples and placed them directly into the pan once, but it didnt alter the look or taste.

@bontwobon How DARE you question the ancient culinary wisdom??! Haha, joke apart, that's a very good point. I'm guessing it's just habit, and the niggling question in the back of the cook's mind: "Maybe it will look bad if I don't do this. It's not worth risking it, let's add the lemon juice!".
