center

Utensils Needed

Heavy sauce pan with lid
Extra Pot
Stirring Spoon
Candy thermometer
Electric mixer
Disposable molds (foil lined paper plates work well)

Ingredients

4 lb bag of sugar
8 cups sugar (4# bag)
2 cups water
½ teaspoon white vinegar

5 lb bag of sugar
10 cups sugar (5# bag)
2-1/2 cups water
1/2 + 1/8 teaspoon white vinegar

(Doubled recipe works making about 6 each 9" plates 1/2" deep)

Procedure

1. Pour all ingredients into sauce pan and bring to boil stirring constantly
2. Cover and boil 5 minutes
3. Insert candy thermometer and boil until temperature reaches 234°
4. Remove from heat and cool to 200° (putting pot into sink full of water will speed this up!)
5. Whip with electric mixer until mixture begins to turn white with air bubbles throughout (3-4 minutes on the timer)
6. Pour into molds and allow to cool undisturbed
7. Store in a dry location (freezer is a good place)
