Apple Paste Candy

  • 5 apples
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • Flavor
Wipe apples, and cut in pieces. Put in saucepan and add water. Cook until apples are soft. Drain the liquid, of which there should be 3/4 cup, into a clean saucepan. Add sugar and boil to 238°F, or until it will form a soft ball when tried in cold water. Rub apple pulp through sieve. Add to syrup and boil. Stir constantly to prevent burning. Stir constantly until mixture is so thick that it leaves the pan and follows the spoon during the stirring. Add flavor as desired. Orange, raspberry, or lemon extract, 1 Tbsp lime juice, or a few small drops of peppermint oil are good. Paste may be colored delicately to correspond with flavor used. Drop paste from tip of spoon in rounds on wax paper, or spread in a pan lined with butter. Let it dry and cut in fancy shapes. Roll in coarse sugar or crystallize.

This paste may be used as filling for dates, or as a center for chocolates, or for coating pieces of marshmallow paste.

Cooks who go above and beyond, and look deep within themselves to redefine the boundaries of culinary success. Well that's a bit dramatic - our Rascals don't really do that.
