Goodie Goodie Gumdrops 4 Tbsp gelatin (that’s about 6 envelopes) 1 cup cold water 1 1/2 cups boiling water 4 cups sugar 1/4 tsp flavored extract like lemon or peppermint 1-2 drops food coloring (I used four colors) extra sugar for coating You can also make 2 – 8X8 pans or 1 – 9X12 pan depending on the number of colors you want to make.
Rock Candy. 2 cups water • 1 cup white corn syrup • 3 1/2 cups sugar • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar Then I added: • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract • 3 drops of blue gel food coloring Boil the mixture and then continued stirring it on the heat until it reached 300 degrees F (used a candy thermometer to measure the temp). At that point, Pour it into a tray to cool. It hardened up in about an hour and then smash it to pieces. Great in a pretty jar for gifts! by renee.harrell.752
