Taffy Apples

  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • Rosy Red apples, free from blemishes
  • Thick Skewers
(not terribly sure how many apples this recipe will coat)

Stick each apple with a stick or skewer

Make the taffy syrup by boiling together the sugars, water, and vinegar.

Cook the mixture until a small amount, dropped in cold water, will crack when pushed together between your fingers.

Dip the apples in the syrup, making sure they are completely coated.

Lay them on wax paper to dry or prop them on their stick to dry.
