The ingredients & instructions are listed below the video for measurements & directions. Please enjoy this webisode of Cooking with Kimberly:
- 4 firm apples – I used granny smith apples in this show.
- 1/8 cup water
- 1/4 cup peach vinegar – I used Napa Valley Vinegar Co. Peach Vinegar.
- 1/8 cup light corn syrup
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1/4 cup heavy cream or sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- dash of salt
- Note: You could use 1 package of caramels (14 oz), if you don’t want to make your own caramel.
- Wash apples and remove stems.
- Pierce the apples, using thick skewers, craft sticks, or popsicle sticks, through the indentation where the stem was removed, creating handles for the apples.
- Using a medium sauce pan with a candy thermometer, combine water, sugar, light corn syrup & peach vinegar and bring mixture to a boil on medium-high heat to dissolve sugar in water.
- Note: Use a basting brush with water to wash the sugar crystals from the sides of the pot.
- Turn down to a simmer and allow mixture to come up to the heat of 245 degrees F.
- Note: Swirl the pan frequently, but do not stir mixture.
- Cover a baking tray with parchment, coated with cooking spray, or greased wax paper.
- Take caramel mixture off of the heat & stir in heavy cream. Stir in the butter & vanilla extract with a dash of salt.
- Note: Whisk smooth, if necessary.
- When caramel mixture is smooth, but very slightly cooled to a suitable thickness to adhere to the apples, test on a spoon to check whether or not it will stick to it.
- Plunge apples into the caramel mix, swirling and twirling the apples to get a good coating on each apple.
- Note: If you aren’t satisfied with thickness of the caramel coating, dip the apples back into the caramel for a second coat after slightly cooled & hardened.
- While you are twirling each apple, keep moving it around until the caramel has partially hardened on the apple.
- Then, place the apples on the parchment paper on baking sheets until fully hardened.
- You could melt some chocolate and drizzle it over the caramelized apple.
- Re-dip half of the apple in the caramel and roll it in chopped nuts or coconut.
