Caramel Apple Slices

2 c. granulated sugar
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 c. finely grated, pared apples and juice (2 med.)
3/4 c. evaporated milk
2 Tbsp. butter or marg.
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. miniature marshmallows
1 c. chopped pecans or walnuts

Combine all ingredients except marshmallows and nuts in heavy saucepan. Cook to softball stage (240°). Mixture scorches easily so stir often.

Place double row of marshmallows along one 8-inch edge. Roll up like jelly roll; roll in chopped nuts. Wrap in waxed paper. Chill until firm. Cut; store in airtight container. Makes three dozen 1/4-inch slices.
