CANDIED APPLES

8 to 10 crisp red apples such as Red Delicious, Winesap, Jonathan or Mcintosh
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon red food coloring
Few drops clove oil, if desired

Butter cookie sheet generously. Wash and dry waxed apples thoroughly.
Insert wooden skewer in stem end of each apple. Mix sugar, water,
corn syrup and food color in 2-quart heavy saucepan. Heat to
boiling over high heat; reduce heat. Boil gently, without
stirring, to 290 on candy thermometer or until small amount of
mixture dropped into very cold water separates into threads that
are hard but not brittle. Stir in clove oil. Dip apples quickly
into syrup, twirling until completely coated. Stand on cookie
sheet; cool.

MICROWAVE DIRECTIONS: Mix sugar, water, corn syrup and food color
in 1 1/2-quart glass casserole. Microwave uncovered on high 19 to
23 minutes, stirring once after 5 minutes, to 290 on microwave
candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into
very cold water separates into threads that are hard but not brittle.
Stir in clove oil. Dip apples quickly into syrup. Continue as
directed.

NOTES : Pour any remaining syrup onto buttered cookie sheet. Cool;
break into small pieces for a treat.

This was such a great idea! I love the fact that this can be microwaved! I do however cut my apples into wedges and dip then that way.. my kids find it harder to eat whole apples and dipping them this way makes much less mess and I don't have to deal with waste either. Thanks again!
