plastic wrap and set aside. In a saucepan, place apples with enough
water to cover. Add lemon juice. Cook over high heat until boiling 5
minutes. Add sugar, cloves, cinnamon, and walnuts; continue cooking
over low heat until slightly thickened. Combine cornstarch and water

apple mixture down the middle of each tortilla. Fold one side of the
tortilla over the mixture; then fold the remaining side over. Fold
in the ends and seal by moisting the tortillas with a little water.
