  • Sugar: 300 grams.
  • Sugar powder (for sprinkling).

1 step. Wash the apples. For small fruits, you can not remove the core, and cut only into 4 parts, for large ones, cut all sides (skinned, but boneless). Put in a large saucepan, add a little water (about 50 ml), simmer on a small fire, stirring occasionally, until the apple mass turns into a puree. It takes about 20-25 minutes, depending on the size of the pieces of raw materials.

7 step. In the oven, preheated to 70 degrees, put a pan. Preparing the pastille from 6 to 8 hours. If you have a timer in the oven, you will need to turn it on periodically. You can just check the time. It is better not to do this at night, because the pan should be periodically turned over (every 2 hours, for example). This is necessary so that the apple mass warms evenly from all sides.

How to understand that the pastila is ready?

The pastila is ready, if its thickness has decreased, the consistency has become more dense, and on the surface there were a few sweet sugar drops of syrup. In fact, heating in the oven simply draws out excess moisture from the product. The surface should be smooth and not stick to your hands. At a temperature of 70 degrees, the human hand can withstand touch. After 6.5-8 hours, remove the parchment from the oven, cool slightly. Pour a smooth surface with powdered sugar, turn the pastille over and carefully remove the parchment from it. If the edges are stuck, cut them: they can also be eaten. Cut into strips, roll into rolls. Can be fastened with toothpicks, sprinkled with powdered sugar for beauty. If some edge of pastila has not yet "grabbed" in the oven, cut it off and send it back to warm up. From one kilogram of apples I got 6 fairly thick rolls (3-4 cm thick, 5 cm long). The weight at the outlet is about 300-400 gr. The edges of the marshmallow, which are stuck to the parchment, can also be separated from the surface and eaten.


This unique handmade homemade candy will decorate any holiday table! For all its usefulness and original taste, it is also well preserved. Wrap it in parchment and cling film, put it in a cold place, reach out as needed.
