6 medium apples – peeled, quartered, and cored
1 cup of water
1 cup sugar (I use less, the Red Hot’s are plenty sweet but I use a touch just to make syrup)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup Red Hot’s (I use a box full, it’s probably about 3/4 cup)
Mix sugar, water, and candy. Cook about 5 min or until sugar and cinnamon is dissolved.
Add apples and lemon juice.
Cook until tender and transparent, about 30 minutes.
Since I like really hot, I use a shake or two of cayenne pepper to make it even spicier.
