Christmas Memories

I have a lot of memories of holidays gone by--and some of the happiest are when I was little. The Christmases spent w/ all of our family in Pennsylvania--still to this day, when I think of Christmas I think of those times first. And a lot of those memories revolve around food. Each of my grandmas had their "special" things they made at the holidays and I have a few favorites from each. This is one of those. It comes from my Grammy and will always be one of my favorite treats during Christmas; and I'm so happy to have passed that love onto Alex!!

Cinnamon Apples
As many apples as you want to make, peeled, cored and quartered
1/4- 1/3 cup cinnamon candies (use more or less depending on how "hot" you want them)
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups water

Mix together candies, sugar and water. Bring to a boil and add apples a few at at time boiling for 1-1 1/2 minutes. When all done cooking apples, pour liquid over apples and add a dash of red food coloring. Store in a air tight container in the fridge.

These are amazing apples!!! I have made them every year since Grammy use to make them when we were little. I can't imagine a Thanksgiving or Christmas without these. It took me a couple of years to get the apples just right because for a few years they were a bit mushy but these are absolutely AMAZING!!! Great Share!!
