- 10 to 12 - medium apples

Grease baking sheet; set aside.
Wash and dry apples; remove stems and insert skewers into stem ends. In heavy 2-quart saucepan, stir together sugar, cream of tartar, water, lemon juice and cloves; stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Add coloring. Bring to a boil and continue cooking, without stirring, until temperature reaches 310°F on candy thermometer or hard crack stage (a small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water will form brittle threads).
Remove from heat. Skim out cloves. Twist apples in syrup quickly. Set on prepared baking sheet. Use same day as prepared.
Makes 10-12 apples.
