Supper went pretty good today. The youth were all walking around later complaining that they ate too much, which is a good problem for a cook to have. My mom helped me out, which was nice, because I would not have been able to do it all myself. Nothing went terribly wrong, which is a relief, considering the last two days that I have had.
Here’s the surprise! Those lovely apples from yesterday were turned into lovely caramel apples! I did cook one batch of caramel a little long and it got a little bit hard, so it was kind of difficult for them to bite into the apples, but they still were a big hit. I love caramel apples, and now that I have made them a couple times, I know they are relatively easy to make, you just have to keep stirring so as to not burn the caramel. And it takes a little while for it to reach the right temperature, so it sometimes feels like it’ll never got hot enough, but it does. A few burned fingers later (that stuff is HOT), and you have tasty apples to enjoy.
