~ Red Candied Apples ~

8 Firm red apples
8 wooden sticks (washed popsicle sticks work great!)
3 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup water
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. red food coloring

Wash and dry your apples (make sure they are firm,
unbruised apples). Remove the stem. Insert a wooden
stick where the stem was. Grease a cookie sheet to
set dipped apples on.

Put sugar, syrup and water in a pot. Heat and stir to
dissolve. Boil without stirring until liquid is 300F (150C)
on your candy thermometer. At this temperature a drop
of syrup in cold water will separate into brittle threads.
Remove from heat.

Mix in cinnamon and food coloring. Dip apples in syrup.
Drain over saucepan. Set on cookie sheet. If the syrup
starts to harden reheat it. Let apples cool before eating!!
