Grandma's recipes were so good. I still love these and make some every year.

Ingredients

1 c
water
3/4 c
apple cider vinegar
3/4 c
sugar
3/4 tsp
cinnamon
1/4 tsp
ginger
1/4 tsp
allspice
3-4
drops red food coloring, optional
3 slice
lemon
3 large
red cooking apples

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In 12 inch skillet heat all ingredients except apples to boiling. Reduce heat, cover, and let simmer 5 minutes to blend flavors. Red food coloring is optional, but makes these very pretty.
2
Meanwhile, core apples (but leave peel on) and slice into 1/4 inch thick rings. Cook half of rings at a time in liquid. Simmer until tender but FIRM, about 3-5 minutes. Dip out first half of apples rings and cook second half in same liquid.
3
Discard lemon slices. Place all apple rings in a serving bowl and pour liquid over all. Cover and refrigerate for up to one week. Serve cold as a side dish or appetizer. Great with poultry or pork. Can also be used as a topping for ice cream.
4
TO USE AS A GIFT: Arrange apple slices in a half-pint jar. Pour liquid over apples and place a lid on jar. Give with a card indicating that apples must be refrigerated and should be used within one week.

I love these and would like to get a hold of some crab apples. I would have to use a sugar sub. I hope that works. Thanks for the recipe!

Made these last night. The vinegar was a little overpowering in mine but the rest of the flavor was really good. Next time I make them I'll increase the sugar and reduce the vinegar a little. Also I think I'll take the skin off next time-didn't like chewing on it.

Can't wait to make again-such a fun blast from the past-brings back memories!
