Apple Rings in a Red Hot Candies Syrup

Yes. Beets are not as exciting as cinnamon apples. My son was about four years old and pointed out a can of red, yummy looking things in a can. Beets.

I bought them, but I argued slightly with him.

He was convinced that they were cinnamon apples.

Well. I did explain to him that the flavor wasn't what he was expecting. I was right.


Ingredients

Apple Preparation:

  • apples, peeled, cored, sliced into rings
  • water
  • lemon juice

For the syrup:

  • red hots
  • water
  • sugar
  • red food coloring

In jar:

  • stick cinnamon
  • ginger
  • whole cloves

Once apples are peeled, they will want to turn brown, so have lemon juice ready to help keep them white.

Wash up some jars, lids and rings.

Mix water, sugar and red hots and heat over medium heat. When red hots have melted, add apples to syrup.


Add apple slices to the melted syrup, then, cook gently for 4 minutes. Place slices in jars. Pour hot syrup into jars with apples.

Place lid on jars. Do not water bath can.

Cool and refrigerate.

I decided to make some candied apples for him. Apples, red hots, sugar, water... Some cinnamon sticks, whole cloves and hopefully, it will make up for 31 years worth of anguish.
