RE: caramel apples
I love caramel apples with nuts. This time of year, with apple picking time coming up, sometimes you can find an orchard that sells the caramel apples. Mmmm-mmm. I also love to buy them at the local fairs.
Another thing they've been selling lately, which is a little easier to eat, is an apple, cut into wedges (for ease in dipping), placed in a bowl with a ladle full of hot caramel dropped in the middle. It's easier to eat while walking around, but you can't exactly pack it up to take home.
