    This dish is a holiday tradition at our house. Wouldn't be a holiday w/o them. From the oldest to the youngest, this is a favorite!

    My Momma's Cinnamon Redhot Apples

    8-10 medium apples, peeled, cored and halved
    3-4 cups water
    3/4-1 cup sugar (may need additional)
    1/2-3/4 cup red hots (may need additonal)
    red food coloring (to make to deep red color)

    In a large saucepan, combine water, sugar, red hots and food coloring. Bring to a boil. Add some of the apples that have been prepared. Bring the liquid back to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook the apples until almost tender. As they finish cooking, remove to a dish, and continue with remaining apples. You may have to add additional ingredients, depending upon size and quantity of apples. When finished, boil down the liquid until thick and syrupy, pour over the apples and chill for several hours or overnight.
