Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 12 cup water
  • 13 cup red cinnamon candies (red hots)
  • 5 medium red apples, pared and sliced into six pieces

Directions

  1. Bring the first three indgredients to a rapid boil in a large saucepan or dutch oven. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent boiling over, sticking, and to help melt the candies.
  2. Reduce to a medium heat and place the apples (peeled side down) into the hot syrup. Cook until done or about 15 minutes. They will fork tender -- don't overcook or you will have red applesauce! Cool and serve. We think they are best chilled overnight.
