Halloween Recipes and Cooking Ideas
Thursday, February 26, 2004
Autumn starts our holiday cooking fest and Halloween is a great holiday to start off with! We whip up caramel apples, pop corn balls, pumpkin pie and bake up a few batches of Halloween decorated cupcakes or cookies. Sometimes I think we just have our annual Halloween party to give us an excuse to cook!
Here's a couple of our favorite recipes:
CARAMEL APPLES - makes about 5 caramel apples depending on apple size
40 - Caramel cubes (we prefer the Borden Brand)
5 - Apples (we like Macintosh apples)
1 - Tablespoon of water
5 - Wooden sticks
1 - Wax paper
Wash and dry apples thoroughly. Remove stems and insert wooden sticks (usually found in the bag of caramels) into the stem hole until about half the stick is in the apple. In a small saucepan, over low heat, melt the caramels with the water, stirring constantly until smooth. Now dip the apples into the hot caramel sauce, coating the apple completely. Place on greased wax paper.
STORAGE & SERVING
Store your caramel covered apples in the refrigerator. Before serving, remove them out and allow them to stand at room temperature for about fifteen minutes.
WITCH'S TEA - This one is great for sipping on a chilly night!
INGREDIENTS TO MAKE SYRUP
2 cinnamon sticks
5 whole cloves
3 tablespoons peeled and finely chopped or grated fresh ginger
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
In a small saucepan bring syrup ingredients to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved, and simmer covered for 5 minutes. Let syrup cool. Syrup can be kept for about a week in the refrigerator in a tightly sealed jar.
Brew up your favorite tea and add a few drops to your cup of tea to taste. You can use a cinnamon stick to stir and add some extra cinnamon taste.
