    Ummmm, I made them last Fall, hmmm! I can't remember the recipe...

    While I was just searching, I found a recipe for making candied apples from scratch, I never knew the ingredients:

    Candied Apples
    10 Servings

    1 1/2 cups sugar
    2 teaspoons vinegar
    2/3-cup water
    1 package cherry kool-aid
    10 apples

    Mix sugar, vinegar and water. Boil until mixture reaches 300-degrees; cool. Stir in Kool-Aid. Put apples on sticks and dip into mixture quickly.

    end of hijack;)

    Apple Peel Jelly

    Place apple peels, lightly packed, into a 4.5 qt. pot with 5 cups of water. There should be about 3-4 inches of peels in the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and boil for 15 minutes, stirring as little as possible. Remove from heat, put the lid on the pot, and allow to stand overnight. (Optional, add a cinnamon stick when you let it sit overnight.) Strain the liquid into a measuring cup, and make certain you have 5 cups. Return to the pot. Gradually dissolve 1 box of pectin into the liquid and bring to a full rolling boil, over high heat. Add 7 cups of sugar (all at once), stirring to dissolve. Return to boiling, and boil hard for 1 minute. Remove from heat, skim foam if necessary, and can into ½ pt. jelly jars. Process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes.

    We feed them to the cows. ;) Although, after seeing that so incredibly disgusting skittles commercial, I'm not sure that I'll allow dh to do that anymore.

    Gummy Worms made at home!
    Oct 23 '02

    The Bottom Line OOoo! Worms?!?! Yes, yummy worms!

    By popular request, I am posting a recipe I have been handed from unknown sources on how to make homemade Gummy Worms. This is in response to my review of the Pampered Chef Apple Peeler/Corer/Slicer, and what to do with your leftover apple peel.

    So without further ado...

    "Gummy Worms"

    After peeling apple with Apple Peeler Corer Slicer throw the moist peels in a zip lock bag and pour in your favorite flavor of DRY jello (do not use sugar free). Shake until peels are well coated.

    Lay them out on a flat stone and bake at 250 degree for 30 - 45 minutes (depending on the amount of peels).

    I have also heard that you need to only bake them for 15-20 minutes.

    I plan to make some soon, so I will let you know how it goes for me. If you do try it, let me know how it goes for you, and I'll add it to this review!

    Good luck, and peel more apples and eat more worms!

    AH HAH! Thats the recipe....I kept thinking "a koolaid packet is so small" ....
  9. What happeneds to the Stone? It seems like the jello would stain it.
  10. We throw ours in the garbage;)

    Add them to a pan of water with cinnamon (and if you prefer, cloves) and have them simmer on the stove. Makes a great popurrie (I can't spell that dang word...looks like poopie to me!:eek: )
