Well hello there, sweet tooth. Have you been feeling neglected during this abundant season of fresh veggies and fruits? Have my attempts to eat more greens and protein left you feeling abandoned and adrift? Cast out in the cold, dark, sugar-less world? I’m so sorry. Well, I’m mostly sorry. You and I go way back, sweet tooth. Waaaay back. And I’d never truly leave you—nope, we’re bonded for life. We’re like BFFs, but it’s more like BFST. We’re like Bert and Ernie. Sonny and Cher. Sweet Tooth and Self.
And because I have to believe that you and I aren’t the only ones who share this special connection, I’m confident that there are others out there who feel equally enamored with their sweet tooths. (Wait, maybe that should be Sweet Teeth? Hmm.)
So, dear sweet tooth, I offer you this: it’s a recipe for Candied Apples from Sweet Confections: Beautiful Candy to Make at Home by Nina Wanat.
This free downloadable PDF is just a taste of the 40 gorgeous, delicious recipes featured in the book. I’m also thinking of it as an autumnal homage to my Comrades in Candy, my Circle of Chocolate Lovers, my Confection Fellowship.
Happy Fall, everyone—and happy eating, sweet tooth.
