2 cups white sugar
2 cups water
1 Add sugar and water to a medium pot over medium-high heat until sugar is dissolved. Remove from burner and set pot aside. Without peeling or coring, slice apples from top to bottom about 1/16 of an inch thick using a mandoline. After slicing, remove stems, seeds and fuzzy apple bottoms with a paring knife, or you can use an apple peeler, separating each ring. Add the spices to to the warm simple syrup, add sliced apples and soak for about 10 minutes. Stir 5 minutes into soaking. (you can add a few dashes of fruit fresh or 1 tablespoons lemon juice if you like).
