    This was very good. My mom served the apple halves with a cream cheese and pecan filling. I think it was the sweet and savory mix that made it so good.

    Well received by family. This was as tasty as it was attractive. Made a nice accompaniment to my entr?e. Easy to make once the prepping of the apples was done. I will likely make this again.

    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

    These remind me of my Grandma's. We insisted on these at every holiday dinner. I like keeping her tradition going.
