CANDIED APPLES
INGREDIENTS
2 Cup granulated sugar
2 Cup corn syrup
1/3 Cup cinnamon candy
1 Cup water
3/4 Tsp. cinnamon 1/2 Tsp. vanilla
1/4 Tsp. cloves
3/4 Tsp. red food coloring
6 Med apples

PREPARATION
Remove stems from apples (I happen to like Macintosh apples), wash, and pat dry. Insert a wooden skewer in each apple, running through the apple from stem end to base without protruding all the way through the bottom end. Combine sugar, corn syrup, cinnamon candies, and water in medium-sized saucepan. Cook until the candies dissolve, stirring constantly. Be careful not to boil. Add cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, and food coloring. Mix thoroughly. Boil mixture to 300 degrees using a candy thermometer without stirring.

STORAGE & SERVING
While mixture is boiling, generously prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray so it's ready ahead of time. As soon as mixture reaches 300 degrees, remove it from heat and quickly dip each apple-one by one-into the mixture until it is thoroughly coated. Set coated apples, standing on their bottoms with skewer pointing up, on baking sheet until mixture hardens. Let apples reach room temperature before eating.

CARAMEL CORN
INGREDIENTS
14 cups popped popcorn 2 cups sugar (packed)
1 cup butter 1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking soda

PREPARATION
Combine the sugar, butter, corn syrup and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once it begins to boil, stop stirring for 5 minutes, or until mixture reaches 255 degrees on candy thermometer. (You may have to adjust according to altitude and humidity). Remove from heat and stir in baking soda. The mixture will start to foam, so stir well until blended.

While the caramel mixture is cooking, pop the pop-corn either in a hot air popper or microwave. Once you have popped the pop-corn, remove any unpopped kernels. Now place the popcorn in a large (buttered) metal bowl.
Pour the hot mixture over the pop-corn and toss gently with well buttered forks to distribute evenly.

Spread onto 2 ungreased baking sheets and bake at 200 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. if it starts to look too golden it may be time to take it out!
Oven temperatures vary not only with model but with altitude, so you'll have to adjust time accordingly.

STORAGE & SERVING
Remove the caramel corm from the oven and allow to cool completely. Once cool, break it into clusters, and store in a tightly covered container. For a Halloween party, serve on on a large serving tray or in decorative bowls. For treats, fill those little paper Halloween bags.

Ok I am back. I am going to post some recipes that I have tried and they are good

SCONES

3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 teaspoons cream of tartar
6 Tablespoons butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups milk, approximately

Mix flour, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar in bowl. Cut in margarine until mixture resembles fine bread crumbs. Add milk to form soft but not sticky dough. Turn onto a floured surface and knead lightly. Pat dough out to 3/4 inch thickness. Cut into rounds. Sprinkle tops lightly with extra flour and bake on a lightly floured baking sheet at 425 degrees for 10 minutes or until risen and golden. Serve warm or cool with butter and jam.

Options:
For raisin scones, which are sweeter, add 1/2 cup raisins and 2 tablespoons sugar after rubbing in margarine. For cheese scones add 1 teaspoon dry mustard and 3 tbsp grated cheddar cheese after rubbing in margarine. I use about 2 cups of cheese and no mustard but thats me

Ham and Bean Soup

1 pound or 2 cups Navy beans
8 cups of water
12 baby carrots
1/2 pound chopped ham
1/4 cup ketchup optional
salt and pepper to taste

In large bowl or pot combine beans with water and let soak overnight.

Pick out any discolored ones. In large pot over medium heat, combine the soaked beans and water, carrots, and ham. Add more water to cover all, if necessary. Bring to a boil , then reduce heat to low and let simmer for 4-6 hours. Add ketchup just to get desired color. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
I did not use the ketchup. Also I cooked my carrots ahead of time and added beans, carrots and ham to slow cooker and cooked on high all day. It turned out real good

Thank you, shana!

If that doesn't get people in the spirit, nothing will!

Shephard's Pie with a difference.

Brown 1 lb hamburger
Add onions and mushrooms
Mix in a can or two of cream corn
Make mashed potatoes
put hamburger mixture in a casserole dish
Layer mashed potatoes over the top
Butter the top of the potatoes
Put in oven to grill until browned.
Watch closely so that it does not burn on top
Serve. My family likes this one better than the one with mixed veggies and gravy. So if you like cream corn this is good. Enjoy.

Ok last one cause I dont want the rumor to keep going around that Im some kind of housewife :-D

BBQ Spareribs

Take a large family pack of spareribs and place them in a shallow baking dish. Cover with water and place in oven at 350 degrees. Let cook for 1 hour turn several times. Drain out most of the water leaving a bit on the bottom of the dish just to moisten ribs. Pour your favorite BBQ sauce ( We use the bullseye Honey Garlic sauce) over the ribs and turn oven to grill. cook till it looks nice and brown. Turn over the ribs and do the same to the other side. Watch closely so as not to burn. These ribs fall off the bone and are so good. We serve them with baked potatoes and favorite veggie. This is an experiment hubby tried and we fell in love with it . Enjoy!!

I am looking for two recipes. The first one is a Lemon Supreme pie. Has a layer of cream cheese yummyness on the bottom and a layer of lemony goodness on top LOL

The second one I am looking for is Pumpkin Supreme pie. It's made along the same lines as lemon supreme. Thanks to whomever can find me these two very special recipes!

Halloween Goodies!!

Pumpkin Carving Party
You all know the drill! Journey to the pumpkin patch (or your favorite grocery store) and get the pumpkin with the best carving potential. Cut off the pumpkin's top and scoop out its innards. Don't forget to save the seeds! Separate the seeds from the sludge, rinse them and let them dry for about 4 hours. Then hull 'em and roast 'em with dribbles of olive oil and sprinkles of salt in an oven preheated to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes or until golden. Stir the seeds every 10 minutes or so during the roasting to ensure even cooking. Make those pumpkins freaky and maybe, just maybe, they'll scare the wandering dead away from your house! While you're carving those pumpkins, why not serve some ghoulish pies to get you in the Halloween mood?

Post New England Clam Chowder

I love making soups and normally have good luck with them. However, I can not make New England Clam Chowder! (the creamy kind) :0) And it is one of my favorites! Does anyone have a "No Fail" recipe for this soup and share it with me?
