 Ingredients List

  • 4 To 5 unpeeled apples
  • 2 tb Unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 c Cold water
  • 2 c Sugar
  • 1 tb Cornstarch
  • 1/8 ts Salt
  • 2/3 c Coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1 ts Grated lemon peel
  • 1 tb Lemon juice

Wash apples; without peeling or coring, cut in small pieces. Cook until
very tender in just enough water to avoid scorching. Put through a food
mill or sieve and measure 2 cups pulp into a 2 quart heavy saucepan. Cook
until thick, stirring often.

Soften gelatin in cold water. Mix sugar, cornstarch and salt; add to apple
pulp. Cook again over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is very
thick. Add gelatin; stir until gelatin is dissolved and mixture is again
thick. Remove from heat.

Stir in walnuts, lemon peel, and juice. Turn into an 8" square shallow
glas dish that has been rinsed with cold wate. Let stand 24 hours.

Cut rectangles (about 60). Roll in confectioners sugar, and place on rack
until outside is dry. Store in covered container. Makes about 1 pound 12

Note: You can use 2 cups sweetened canned applesauce to make this
confection, but reduce the amount of sugar from 2 to 1-1/3 cups.
