DIRECTIONS

Wash and core 6 apples of the same size but do not peel them. Half cover with boiling water and, when the apples are tender, remove and peel them. To the water in which they were cooked, add 1 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Bring to the boil and reduce by half. Place the apples back in this syrup, spooning the juice over them until they are thoroughly reheated, and serve.
