Rumor has it that the first time this was served at an SEC tailgating party; it was so popular that it was gone in no time flat! One uppity Southern belle who missed tasting the new recipe was distraught and pitched a big hissy fit, hence forth the name.
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
