Directions

  1. Combine apples and water in a large pot over medium heat; bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Stir cinnamon candies and sugar into the apples and water; return mixture to a simmer and cook until the candies melt, about 15 minutes. Remove pot from heat and set aside until the mixture cools, about 15 minutes.
  2. Mash apples with a potato masher until no large chunks remain. Alternately, you can blend the mixture with an immersion blender to get a smoother applesauce.

Incredibly simple. I used Granny Smith apples. I actually threw everything in the crockpot right before bed, set it on low and it was ready to go in the morning. All I had to do is run the potato masher through it. Kids flipped for this--they thought bright red applesauce made with candy was amazing. I spread this over whole wheat pancakes and the kids raved about it all morning. Thumbs up from both of them.

Some apples just don't taste as good as they look in the store and this is a great recipe for those guys. I microwave my sauce (water+candies) about 3 minutes on high in a 4 cup glass bowl, then stir until dissolved. Add peeled and chopped apples without extra sugar), stir, cover with plastic wrap and microwave until tender (about 5 minutes on high). Mash with a fork or immersion blender for more smooth texture. Serve warm or cold. The smell in the kitchen from the cinnamon is divine. Great as a side with pork or as a dessert after dinner.

Have made this for years. Looks good & tastes great. I prefer to leave the apples chunky & I omit the sugar. Best served cold, a great summer side dish.
