Baked Apples In Casserole

Wipe, pare and core six medium-sized apples. Put in casserole, add one cup water and one and one-half cups sugar and dredge with flour. Cover and cook in a slow oven one hour. Do not remove cover during the baking.

Apple Ball Sauce

Wipe apples, pare and shape into balls, using a French vegetable cutter; there should be one and one-half cups. Make a syrup by boiling one cup sugar, three-fourths cup water, six cloves and three or four thin shavings from the rind of a lemon, seven minutes. Remove cloves and rind, add one-third of the balls and cook until soft; repeat twice. Cook syrup until reduced one-half and pour over balls.
