Recipe source: BP’s mom, who got it from her mom

When I first saw a dish of these apples at a family gathering a few years ago, I thought they were tomatoes, and I didn’t try them until BP had a pile on his plate. He informed me, as he wolfed down a few slices, that they were not, in fact, tomatoes, but they were his grandmother’s cinnamon apples.

Curious, I tried one, and it was, in fact, delicious. However, I was still confused why they were bright red (they are much more red in person – the photo doesn’t do them justice). It turns out, the secret “cinnamon” ingredient was red-hot candies, or cinnamon imperials if you buy the bag by Brach’s. I was hooked and immediately requested the recipe from BP’s mom.
