    Aplets are a great candy for summertime or school lunch boxes! In Washington State, and other
    places where they are marketed, you can buy Aplets and Cotlets and Grapelets. With this recipe you
    can make your own.


    In cup or small bowl stir gelatin into 1 cup applesauce; set aside until gelatin dissolves. In
    medium saucepan stir sugar into remaining applesauce. Add gelatin dissolved in applesauce. Over

    Title: Aplets and Cotlets Categories: Candies Yield: 64 servings

    3 Tbsp Gelatin 3 cup Apple juice or unsweetened -apricot juice 1 1/3 cup Granulated sugar 2 Tbsp
    Each lemon and lime juice, -or more as needed
    2/3 cup Cornstarch 2 cup Walnuts, chopped 1 cup Powdered sugar

    Makes about 64 small cubes

    Soften the gelatin in 1/2 cup of the apple juice. Boil remaining juice with the sugar for 15 minutes
    to concentrate it. Mix the lemon and lime juice, and add all but 1/4 cup cornstarch to dissolve it
    in the mixture. Add both gelatin mixture and cornstarch mixture to the boiled juice and boil again
    rapidly for 10 minutes until very thick, stirring constantly. Taste for sweet and sour and add more
    lemon juice if wanted.

    Mix in the walnuts and pour mixture into a 9-by-9-by-2-inch baking pan that has been dipped in cold
    water. Let paste harden 12 hours or overnight, then cut with a sharp knife into squares. Mix
    together the reserved 1/4 cup cornstarch and powdered sugar. Remove squares with a spatula and roll
    each in the powdered sugar mixture (the cornstarch helps keep the sugar dry).

    There are tons of recipes out there. Go to your favorite recipe source on the net. Search recipes
    for "Turkish Delight". This will mostly be with apricots and will get you started. I tried
    Epicurious.com, www.recipes4us.co.uk. Also, just search on google! The key here is don't use
    "applets" as this is some cyber jargon. Search for "cotlets" alone and you'll see many collections
    of different recipes. for both applets and cotlets. Most have more flavor than the real things.
