How To Make Candied Apples
Glistening red, candy coated apples sitting pretty in a row, patiently waiting for the next customer to take that first delicious bite. Candied apples are a sweet treat that is typically found at carnivals, fairs and country gatherings.
The candied apple has a long and rather simple history. A confectioner by the name of William W Kolb created the apple when working in his commercial kitchen. He was trying to come up with creative and new ways to draw customers into his candy store. Working with a hard crack candy mixture, he added a wooden stick to a freshly picked orchard apple and dipped it in the mixture. The sugary treat was placed in his storefront window and well; you can say the rest is history…
The United States is not the only one with a taste for the sugary treat. Germany and many South American countries, for example, eat candy apples during Christmas time, while in the United Kingdom people eat them on Guy Fawkes night while watching fireworks. In Japan they eat candy apples, as well as many other candy-covered fruits, at a number of unique, traditional Japanese festivals.
