S. Chokel

Serves/Makes:24 small or 12 large ones

  • 1 cup (225 ml) homemade applesauce pulp (Winesaps preferable)
  • 2 cups (475 ml) granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) Knox Gelatin
  • 5 tbsp (70 ml) cold water
  • 1 cup (225 ml) nuts, chopped (walnuts are historically used)
  • 1/2 lemon's juice
  • 1 cup (225 ml) to 2 cups (475 ml) powdered sugar to roll candy in
  • In a medium large deep saucepan, boil the applesauce pulp and the sugar hard for one full minute, then simmer for 1/2 hour.
  • Soak the Knox Gelatin and the cold water together, and when dissolved, add it to the boiled sugar and applesauce.
  • Add the nuts to the mixture in the saucepan, mix in and take off the burner.
  • When almost cool, add the juice of 1/2 of a lemon.
  • Next, pour the mixture into a waxpaper lined flat pan (like a jelly roll pan).
  • Let stand at room temperature for at least 8 to 10 hours, maybe longer.
  • Cut into desired shapes and sizes, and roll in powdered sugar.
These are so common and delicious up in Washington State! This recipe was given to me by a woman I worked with at Spokane's Sacred Heart Hospital. They are great for any holiday, Christmas, Easter, Fourth of July, or just a family get-together!
