Colorful, Fragrant, Ever-So-Easy Applesauce

Welcome brunch or breakfast guests with the irresistible scent of cinnamon and apples. Colorful, flavorful, down home fragrance of cinnamon. I invented this recipe because I am slightly lazy and it is so easy. I keep cinnamon Red Hots on hand in a glass jar. Serve slightly warm in a crockpot. NOTE: I also sprinkle red hots on apples in pies and cobblers.

Peel and cut up enough apples (mixed varieties if you like) to fill a sauce pot. Toss in a generous handful of Red Hots.  Over low heat, stir and cook until tender with just enough water to be "saucy" and keep from sticking. Add raisins if you like. The Red Hots provide the color, the sugar, the cinnamon, and make your kitchen smell wonderful. Serve slightly warm in a crockpot on a breakfast buffet. A dollop of Cool Whip is extra yummy. Store leftovers in fridge.
