I researched, and studied and read comments. To no avail. I made the caramel, it looked beautiful, I thought I just hit one out of the part...and then it cooled. Into a grainy mess of caramel crumbs. I was left with six pretty, yet non-caramelly apples, and an 8x8 pan of not chewy caramel. Tear... So, now it is back to the drawing board. More research, and more reading. Hopefully next attempt will be more successful.
Word to the wise. Sugar, water and a pinch of cream of tarter is apparently NOT a good enough substitute for light corn syrup, in spite of what anyone says.
