DIRECTIONS

  • Peel, cut in half and core the apples and drop them in a bowl of water with 3/4 of the lemon juice to prevent them from browning.
  • Make a syrup by boiling the sugar and water with the remaining lemon juice, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes, or until very thick.
  • Drain the apples and drop them into the syrup.
  • Simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until tender and the syrup has become thick again.
  • Add the rose water and cook, stirring, for a moment more.
  • Lift out the apples and place them in a serving bowl or in jars. Pour the syrup over the apples.
