A Good Day to Celebrate!October 27, 2009 in Crafts, Creativity, Recipes, Staff
October 27 is Caramel Apple Day and there is no better way to celebrate than with some yummy caramel apples. We've had the privilege of sampling Jackie's apples on a few occasions and we can attest to their deliciousness!
Caramel Apple Recipe
6-8 Small to medium clean, tart, apples (Apples from the store usually have a waxy finish that needs to be washed clean. Dry very well; caramel will not stick to a wet apple.)
Combine all ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Cook on medium heat-- a too hot burner will scorch easily. Stir mixture constantly, scraping the bottom often. Do not walk away from the cooking caramel!! If you use a candy thermometer heat to 240 degrees or when tested in cold water to firm ball stage. When mixture hits the right temperature, add 1 tsp real vanilla stirring quickly.
Dip clean apples in caramel and place on parchment paper. The apples will not stick to parchment paper which is a very good thing. You will have a little caramel left in the bottom of the pan that you can not dip into so I drizzle this caramel over the already carameled apples for a little extra goodness.Enjoy!!
