   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      cups          sugar
      3/4  can           water
      1/2  cup           molasses -- mild
    1      tablespoon    vinegar
      1/2  teaspoon      red food coloring
   10                    apples
 
     Combine all ingredients except food coloring and apples and cook until
 mixture spins a thread or until candy stays on apple. (Mixture will be thick)
 Add food coloring. Put a stick into apple and dip into mixture. Place on a well
 greased cookie sheet, and allow to dry. Store in covered container, or wrap with
 parchment paper or greased wrap. I suggest using Gala, Paula Red, or any other
 super firm baking apples. This recipe produces the closest I've seen to
 “State Fair” candy apples - those without cinnamon flavoring.
