Autumn Day II




Ingredients: (Serves 8 )
- 8 small apples, washed and stalks removed
- 8 fl. oz. (225ml.) water
- 1 lb. (450g) sugar

Cooking Instructions:
Put the sugar and water into a microwave bowl and cook on Full power for 5 minutes.
Stir until sugar has dissolved then continue cooking on Full power until golden,about 17-20 minutes.
Meanwhile insert a 5-6 inch length of dowelling into each apple.
Remove sugar from microwave and stand for 2 minutes.
Dip the apples in the sugar mixture,using a spoon to cover the whole of the apples.
Hold the apples over the bowl to drain then stand on greaseproof paper to harden.


Ingredients: (Serves 8 )
- 8 medium apples, green or red
- 2 3/4 cups sugar
- 1 1/4 cups light corn syrup
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 15 drops red food coloring

Container: medium heavy sauce pan
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes

Cooking Instructions:
Wash and dry apples, remove stems and insert a wooden stick into the bottom (not stem end) of the apples; approximately 2/3 of the way into the apple. Set apples aside.
In saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, and water. Heat slowly on low heat, stirring constantly.
Once mixture starts to boil, stop stirring and leave boiling until candy mixture reaches 300°F on a candy thermometer, or until a small amount of mixture dropped into cold water separates into breakable threads.
Remove from heat and stir in food coloring. Wait until mixture stops bubbling, then add vanilla, mix well.
Dip each apple into the mixture while mixture is still hot, swirl to cover apple evenly. You will need to work fast to get all the apples dipped before mixture becomes too hard.
Place dipped apple on greased cookie sheet or greased wax paper.

Note: I apologize if it is annoying you that I change the theme of the blog a lot. It's just that I get bored with everything really fast, lately:D
