Grandma Ola's Cinnamon Apple Rings


8 to 10 apples, cut into rings
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup cinnamon candies (red hots)


Put water,  1 1/4 cups sugar, and cinnamon candies into a sauce pan and heat until melted.  Add the apple rings and cook for 20 minutes.  Take out apples.   Add the remaining 1/4 cup sugar to the liquid mixture and boil for 2 minutes.   Pour the sauce over the apples.


Todd remembers his great-grandmother Ola (Viola Gares) making these apple rings when he was little, and they always bring back fond memories.
