4 medium unpeeled apples -- (4 to 5)
2 tablespoons Unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup Cold water
2 cups Sugar
1 tablespoon Cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon Salt
2/3 cup Coarsely chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon Grated lemon peel
1 tablespoon Lemon juice
1/3 cup Confectioners sugar (for rolling)

Preparation / Directions:

Wash apples; without peeling or coring, cut in small pieces. Cook until very tender in just enough water to avoid scorching. Put through a food mill or sieve and measure 2 cups pulp into a 2 quart heavy saucepan. Cook until thick, stirring often. Soften gelatin in cold water. Mix sugar, cornstarch and salt; add to apple pulp. Cook again over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is very thick. Add gelatin; stir until gelatin is dissolved and mixture is again thick. Remove from heat. Stir in walnuts, lemon peel, and juice. Turn into an 8" square shallow glas dish that has been rinsed with cold wate. Let stand 24 hours. Cut rectangles (about 60). Roll in confectioners sugar, and place on rack until outside is dry. Store in covered container. Makes about 1 pound 12 ounces. Note: You can use 2 cups sweetened canned applesauce to make this confection, but reduce the amount of sugar from 2 to 1-1/3 cups.
