    I made these yesterday for our pumpkin carving party. It was really easy and got a laugh out of a few people. No one ate the apples and they got really soft. After the party I mashed them and they made delicious apple sauce!

    I Love this idea, what a hoot ! But you could put it into any punch or cider! I used the "Simply Apple" brand juice and just add some cinnamon. I don't get the need for lemon juice Don't they brown in the Oven anyway! I 'd try to experiment with different small apples.

    My daughter and I made this for a Girl Scout troop meeting. The girls thought it was disgusting. Some wanted the drink but refused the head, others took the head and tasted it, they said that it tasted a little gummy. It had an interesting flavor and around it was fun halloween drink.

    For sure, that is way too much salt to add in to the punch. I would guess, you dip them into the salt and lemon water until ready to add into the punchbowl or pot. I watched the program too, only remember them cutting the apples.

    While they did not demonstrate dipping into lemon juice, they had a bowl of lemon juice on the counter and explained dipping into the juice would prevent premature browning while you are preparing the apples. I do not recall them mentioning the salt though. Personally, I would onit this, not sure if it would make the cider taste salty...

    I'm sorry to say the tv show did not show them dipping apples in lemon/salt. I usually copy recipes from the show - is this inaccuracy an abnormal occurrence?
