Not a tradition for me

Many places at december markets and in many homes too,
so it is very popular to heat apples (not fry).
Probably a tradition – have no idea who invented it.?
Remember as a child my dear mother’s mother leave her apples on the hot tile stove.
Not because she loved it, but because she could not chew fresh apples.
When she was at home, she took out her artificial teeth because they were gnawing.
Little me thought it was such a shame for her that she had to do that.
Love apples, but not in that way not at all – have never tasted them such.

Inspired by this week theme “Tradition” in the “Friendly Friday”.
