Fall Spiced and Kashmiri Chilli Caramel Apples
Yield: 8-10 caramel apples
Time: 1 hour
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup light corn syrup
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 stick butter, unsalted
1/2 tsp Spicewalla Sicilian Sea Salt
For spiced apples:
1/4 tsp Spicewalla Ginger Powder
1/4 tsp Spicewalla Nutmeg Powder
1/4 tsp Spicewalla Cinnamon Powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
For Kashmiri chilli apples:
1/2 tsp Spicewalla Kashmiri Chilli
8-10 large apples (we used Granny Smith and Honeycrisp), skewered down the center with bamboo chop sticks or popsicle sticks
Rinse the apples under warm water and wipe off thoroughly to remove any waxy residue.
In a large sauce pot over medium heat combine heavy cream, corn syrup, brown sugar, butter, salt, and the spices of your choice.
Stir to melt the sugar until the mixture begins to simmer, then stop stirring and clip a candy thermometer on the side of the pot, making sure the tip of the thermometer is submerged in the sugar mixture but isn't touching the bottom of the pot.
Keep the pot on medium heat and cook until the candy thermometer reads 240*F, then immediately remove the pot from the heat. Let me mixture cool for about 10 minutes.
Dip each apple into the caramel, turning to coat completely. Lift the apple out of the caramel and let the excess drip off the bottom for about 1 minute. Place on a silicone baking mat (parchment or wax paper will work but it will stick to the bottom of the apples).
Let cool completely and enjoy!
