Ingredients:  
8 Red or golden delicious whole apples, approximately
1 9-oz. package red cinnamon candies
1 c. sugar
1 qt. water
8 drops red food coloring

Directions:
Directions:
Add water, sugar, red cinnamon candies and red food coloring to a sauce pan. Stir and bring to a boil and dissolve the cinnamon candies and sugar. Prepare the fresh whole delicious apples by cutting endwise from stem to blossom end. Remove the core and skin from the apple halves and carefully place the apple halves in the red syrup. Place as many halves as you may have in the syrup at one time so that all are covered with the syrup. Reduce the heat so as to just keep the apples boiling. Use a spoon and move them around in the pan as needed to get all covered with the red syrup. Boil until soft (test with a fork). If you are serving the apples soon after preparing, remove each half carefully from the syrup and place on a paper towel to absorb some of the juice. After the apples have been on the paper towel for a short time, place the apples on a serving plate. It is best to cover and place in the refrigerator to cool before serving. Any prepared apples remaining may be placed in a refrigerator container along with the remaining red syrup and kept in the refrigerator for some time.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was probably a PA Dutch treat. I remember my grandmother Bowser, my mother Virginia and my wife Elaine all making these red spiced cinnamon apples as part of our holiday meals. They always add color and an extra taste to the holiday meals. I have now found I too can make them and keep the tradition going at special times of the year. My wife passed away in March 2009 and taught me many things -- one was watching her make red cinnamon spiced apples. Try them -- you'll enjoy them too.
