Candy Apples

To make candy appkes, be sure to use the reddest apples you can find.
  • 6 medium Red Delicious apples, washed, stems removed
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup light corn syrup (Karo)
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 6 to 8 drops red food coloring
Insert wooden skewers into stem end of each apple. Set aside.

Combine the sugar, corn syrup, water and vinegar in a heavy saucepan, mixing well. Cook over medium heat until mixture reaches 295° on a candy thermometer, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in food coloring.

Tilt pan and quickly dip apples in syrup, covering the entire surface. Let excess syrup drip off. Place apples on lightly buttered baking sheet to cool. Store in a cool place.
Makes 6 servings.
