1 cup boiling water
Thin shavings of lemon rind
1 tablespoon gelatine

2 tablespoons lemon juice
Instructions Combine sugar, water and lemon, rind. Boil 3 minutes, remove rind. Drop in sections of apple, pared and cored. Cook slowly in syrup until clear, covered part of the time. Lift sections out carefully so as not to break. Measure syrup, add water to make up to 1 1/2
