Bushels of Jonathan apples during apple season always triggered mom to make at least one pot of stewed apples and a second pot of red hot apples. Once these cooled down in the refrigerator, these apple treats made a perfect sweet ending to a weeknight meal.


  1. Quarter, core and peel apples (whatever quantity you wish). Heat water in a large pan. Add red hots to desired taste and dissolve. Add sugar to taste. Add apples and enough water to cover apples. Let cook until tender, covered. Cool down, then chill.
