[Unit 6] пастила recipe

2 lb (1 kg) sour apples
2 tbsp sugar or honey
2 tbsp water

Wash and peel apples, remove seeds, and cut every apple into 8 pieces.
Place the apples into an oven-safe sauce-pan with a thick bottom.
Sprinkle apples with the sugar, and pour 2 tbsp water on a top.
Place the sauce-pan on a medium heating, and boil apples for about 20 minutes.
Blend boiled apples until an even consistency, return to the sauce-pan, and boil with a very low heating until the consistency turns thick.
Cover a baking sheet with a parchment paper, and put boiled apples on paper.
Flatten to make an even layer.
Set an oven temperature to 210 F (100 C), and place the baking sheet into the oven.
Dry a pastila slightly opening the oven's door.
To check if pastila is ready, cut a corner .
If the knife does not stick, turn the heating off, and leave baking sheet in oven until a cooling.
Remove the paper, cut pastila into pieces, and keep in a dry cool place.
