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

apples. Cover and refrigerate the apples until serving time, and
discard the syrup or refrigerate for other uses.
