RECIPE FOR OLD-FASHIONED HARD CANDY
Title:Old-Fashioned Hard Candy
Category:Christmas
Sub-Category:Candy
Old-Fashioned Hard Candy

2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup water
2/3 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon oil flavoring*
Food coloring as desired
Confectioners' sugar

* Oil flavoring can be purchased at drugstore or baking supply shop.

Mix sugar, water and syrup until sugar is dissolved. Boil on medium heat to 300 degrees F or hard ball stage.

Remove from heat. Add flavoring and food coloring and mix well. Odor will be extremely strong at this time, so prepare in well-ventilated kitchen. Pour in streams onto cookie sheet which has been very generously covered with confectioners' sugar. Make little ditches of confectioners' sugar so the candy does not spread too much. Sift more confectioners' sugar on top of candy streams. Cut with scissors into bite-size pieces as it begins to cool and outer edge will hold its shape. Do not wait until it is completely cooled, because it becomes hard and impossible to cut.

Yields 1 pound.
