Rose Apple Salad

Comment on this recipe

"I know molded gelatin salads are no longer as popular today as they were in the past. But making use of the traditional colors of red and green make this salad appropriate for the Christmas season."

Ingredients

1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
1-1/2 cups cold water
1/4 cup red cinnamon candies
1 box (6 ounces) lime gelatin
Few drops green food coloring, if desired
9 Jonathan apples, pared and cored

Instructions

In a medium-size saucepan, combine sugar, water and cinnamon candies; bring to a boil. Cook the apples in the syrup until tender. Remove the apples to a platter and let cool.

Prepare the lime gelatin as per directions on the box to the point where the gelatin is partially set. Pour into 9-inch square pan. Place the cooled apples in pan, allowing gelatin to surround each one.
