I could not help but think this includes the old. The kids love it. Mostof the cooking liquid will be left and I was never able to throw it away, so sometimes I boil down further to make a sauce for vanillaice cream. Another time I had soda water in the syrup, add ice cubes, and surprisingly good start.
1 cup sugar
½ cup water
1 tablespoon white vinegar
¼ cup small cinnamon hot candies
4 large Golden Delicious or Rome Beauty Mix sugar, vinegar,water, and candy in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer gently for 5 or 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until candyis melted. Meanwhile, peel apples and cut into balls (and half aball) with a bowler ball cutter. Try to get as many balls as possiblefrom every Apple. Drop the balls into the syrup and simmer gently,stirring often, until tender, 6 or 7 minutes. Remove the potato ballswith slotted spoon to a bowl. Spoon tablespoon drops 2 to 3 tablespoons of the ball, then cover tightly and refrigerate until readyto serve
time. Balls will keep well for one or two weeks.
