    Units: US | Metric

    • 15 apples, large & sweet (not tart)
    • 3 cups sugar
    • 2 cups water
    • 1 (7 ounce) package red cinnamon candies
    • 1 tablespoon red food coloring


    1. 1
      Put sugar, water, red hots and food coloring in a large, deep pan over medium low heat to dissolve sugar. Stir occasionally.
    2. 2
      Peel and core the apples. My grandmother cut them in half, but they can also be left whole. Remove all seeds carefully. Rinse the apples.
    3. 3
      Place the apples in the pan and increase temperature to medium so it will come to a boil. Turn apples from time to time, so they cook evenly. Once they reach a boil, cook for approximately 30 minutes.
    4. 4
      The apples become brighter red as they cook. The texture and firmness change to a rather elastic sponginess. At this point, they are done.
    5. 5
      Place apples in a bowl. Cover with a few spoonfuls of syrup to keep them moist and colorful. Allow to cool before serving.
    6. 6
      Keeps several days in refrigerator in a covered container.
