These cinnamon apples have the flavor of cinnamon red hots candy and they are so easy to make and are delicious as a little side dish or to finish off a meal. They are also along with their syrup a fantastic topping for ice cream. When you make them they need to sit in the syrup for a few hours to really soak in that cinnamon flavor but after 3 or 4 hours they are divine.
This recipe is from Cooking Bride and she cut hers into wedges. I tripled the recipe and cut mine into slices about a half inch thick so they could go into quart mouth jars. I know there are recipes to can these but they keep for a good long time in the fridge without being canned and are easy to make so I never can them. I just make a batch of 3 or 4 quarts and keep them in the fridge. When you have a craving for something sweet just grab a ring or two out of the jar and your sweet tooth is satisfied. As soon as autumn takes over, apple season comes into full swing. And during fall, what better dessert option is there than savoring the nutrient-packed apples?
