DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • 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.
