APPLE BALL COCKTAIL

Cut tops from stem end of 8 choice apples. Remove inside of apples with a French ball cutter, putting balls in 2 cups cold water with Juice of 1 lemon. Reserve tops of apples, cores, and small pieces for apple sauce. Put Apple shells in 1 quart cold water to which is added 1 teaspoon salt. Remove skins and seeds from 1/4 lb. (1 cup) white grapes. Just before serving drain apple shells. Remove apple balls from the water. Drain and mix with the White grapes and with 1/3 cup maraschino cherries and fill apple shells. Mix 3 tablespoons syrup from maraschino cherries with Juice of 1/2 orange and put over the apple balls. Serve apple shells in individual dishes or cocktail glasses surrounded with Crushed Ice.

Apple may be removed in small oval shapes with a coffee spoon, if a French ball cutter is not available.

Grapes may be bought in cans if fresh grapes are not in market.
