Red Apples

Janet Brinley


We have these at every family holiday meal. Looking forward to teaching my kids how to make them so they can carry on the tradition!

Stove Top


apples, granny smith, or your favorite cooking apple
1 bottle
decorator cinnamon red-hot candies

Directions Step-By-Step

Peel and core apples. Cut each apple into 8 chunky pieces by cutting into quarters the long way and then each quarter in half so that you have fat chunks. Place the apples in a pan with just enough water to barely cover them and dump in the red hot candies. Cook over medium heat until boiling and then for about 5-8 minutes more - just until the apples are fork-tender. Do not overcook, or you'll end up with pretty applesauce. Remove from heat and refrigerate in the juice. Serve cold. Best if done the day before.
