8 to 10 apples, unpeeled
2 c. water
4 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1 c. cold water
4 c. sugar
2 T. cornstarch
2 c. coarsely chopped walnuts
2 tsp. grated lemon rind
1 T. lemon juice
Confectioners' sugar

Wash apples, chunk into small pieces, cook in water until tender, about 15 minutes. Sieve apples through a food mill to remove peelings and seeds. Measure 4 c. pulp into a heavy 2 quart saucepan. Cook until thick, stir often to prevent scorching.

Soften gelatin in cold water. Combine sugar and cornstarch and add to apple pulp. Continue to cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thickens. Add gelatin and cook over low heat until gelatin is dissolved and mixture is a thick. Remove from heat. Stir in nuts, lemon rind and juice. Spread in two 8-inch square dishes or one larger rectangular glass dish. Refrigerate overnight. Makes 32 2-inch squares of candy.
