Mrs. Lusk’s English Taffy Apples
The recipe is more of a guideline rather than a recipe. One part sugar to one half water. Simple. I really love the simplicity. Nothing fancy, just sugar! I am hoping to try this recipe around Halloween this year. I am almost back in my house and can start cooking again and I’m beyond excited to start making these recipes to post my actual experience again instead of a generic recipe! Stay tuned!
Homemade Caramel Apples Recipe
Take small red apples, pick stem and bloom end out, take meat skewers and spear pointed end into stem end of apples. Make syrup of one part sugar and one-half water, boil until it becomes brown, but do not burn. Dip apples into boiling taffy and place on a greased platter far enough part so they won’t stick together.
