Poached Apples with Vanilla Cinnamon Syrup
In a roomy one gallon pot place peeled apples, vanilla, cinnamon and sugar. Cover with water then bring to a simmer over medium to low heat for twenty minutes. Once the apples are soft enough, pierce with a knife. Remove the apples with a slotted spoon to a holding plate. Reduce poaching liquid to a light syrup, then place the apples back in sauce pot and hold on warm until ready to serve.
