Cooked Apples

  • christmasfruitRecipe
  • This week, my husband and I are at his parents house in Kansas for a week of vacation. He is hunting and I am, well……relaxing. I had a great time yesterday helping my mother-in-law put up the her Christmas tree and it really got me in the holiday spirit! I thought these cooked apples would be perfect to blog about because they are easy and comforting. They kind of remind me of these baked apples that my great grandma used to make; we called they “candied apples.” They are delicious so I’m working on getting the recipe from my mom for those also. Hopefully I will be able to make those for you soon!
    There are so many different things you can throw in here, but this is what I used:

     Cooked Apples 

    3 apples, cored and sliced
    64 oz bottle of cranberry juice
    4 cinnamon sticks
    Lots of freshly ground nutmeg
    Juice and zest from tangerine

    Add everything in a large pot and simmer, stirring occasionally,  for 40 minutes or until apples barely start to fall apart.
    Here is what everything looks like right when you put it in the pot:

    Finished product.

    One of the best things about this is the juice after you scoop out the apples! We love to drink this hot; it’s like cranberry cider! So good!!
