Reviews for Cinnamon Apples
"I love this it is my favorite it is super good and if you add 1/2 a cup more of the red-hot candies it makes it better than it was with 3/4 cups"
"A Holiday tradition in our family for over 60 years - Grandma served the whole poached apples on a green serving platter (no syrup). Her recipe calls for 3 cups of water and sugar, each, and a dozen apples. Remaining syrup was served over waffles or pancakes for New Year's Day breakfast. Three days ahead, prepare and store in quart jars in refrigerator.Kat Seaton , Kansas City, MO"
