I've tried the applesauce....but the other two look so yummy too I just had to share them!
SPICY RED APPLESAUCE
The more cinnamon hearts you add, the spicier it will be! Make this ahead of time, and put in the fridge until dinner.
Shortcut: If you're in a hurry (or don't like to cook) buy a jar of applesauce. Put a 1/2 cup of the applesauce in a saucepan over low heat, add the hearts, stir to dissolve. When the hearts have dissolved, remove it from the heat, let it cool. Now stir it in with the rest of the applesauce and refrigerate until dinner is ready.
4 tart apples, peeled and cored
1/4 cup water
One container or 3 ounces of Cinnamon Hearts (or Red Hots)
Saucepan Knife Fork Mixing spoon
Cut up apples and put in a saucepan with water.
Cover pan, cook slowly until tender (test with a fork, it will vary depending on the type of apple).
Remove from heat.
Add the Red Hots, beat with a spoon to dissolve.
Serve with a few hearts sprinkled on top.
