Spicy apple slices

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
\N \N Stephen Ceideburg
3 larges Apples, washed
\N \N Juice from half a lemon
½ cup Granulated sugar
1 tablespoon Red hot candies (or 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon)
¾ cup Water

Core and slice the apples. Place apples in a medium bowl and pour the lemon juice over them. Toss and set aside.

In a flat pan, combine sugar, candies and water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir until the sugar and candies dissolve. Add the apple slices, a few at a time. Cook until tender, about 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the slices, then remove from the syrup. Continue this process until you have poached all the apples. Cover and refrigerate the apples until serving time, and discard the syrup or refrigerate for other uses.

Serve the apples as a garnish or filling for low-fat cho- colate desserts.
