"So she and her friends. She made Six coca aprons. So she and her six friends eight five pounds of fudge those girls. I can't imagine that they weren't just rolling down the street. Full of fudge stunning. Here's another one. This is a recipe from a Mrs Telly. And it's an old card. It's written in my grandmother's hand in a younger version of my grandmother's hand and it is battered and torn and spotted. So Mrs Tellies Cream Candy Three Cups of Sugar One cup of Cara Syrup one and a Quarter Cup of Cream. One Cup of nuts. Cook to two hundred thirty four degrees again. Use Your Candy. Thermometer beat until stiff then pushed down on plate. Okay I have no idea which do after that. I suppose you cut it into pieces but again these things. They're not really telling us a whole lot. Here's an after dinner mints recipe and this is a very bad typing job from my mom so I get the feeling that this was another one of her high school typing attempts after dinner mints. Put Two cups of sugar two thirds of a cup of boiling water one quarter teaspoon cream of Tartar. One Teaspoon. Vinegar IN SAUCEPAN OVERHEAT. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Then boil without stirring to two hundred sixty five degrees pour onto slightly greased platter and leave until cool enough to handle pole candy with fingers. Adding a few drops of oil of peppermint when too stiff to pull stretch into a rope one half inch in diameter and cut with scissors and small pieces put at once into bowl of powdered sugar and leave until sugary. Can you do that with your kids? That's what I'm thinking of with all of this. I know I'm saying hey feel your kids full of sugar and then let them run around crashing into furniture inside your house. Not necessarily the best idea. I know that I understand that. I don't have children so I don't have to deal with what happens when you fill your children full of sugar but I would think that this is actually kind of fun thing to do. Not just cookies not just cake. Not just cookies or cake from a mix but to make candies. It's really reaching back a couple of generations. Here's another one PECAN pralines one cup sugar white two cups of Light Brown sugar a Quarter Cup of white care of Syrup one eighth of a teaspoon of salt one and a quarter cups of milk one Teaspoon Vanilla and a cup of pecans combine all but vanilla and pecans cooked to softball two hundred thirty six degrees removed from fire and cool to lukewarm. Add pecans and Vanilla and beat with wooden spoon and tell it loses it's gloss drop by tablespoons on waxed paper and spread to four inches diameter rap in cellophane if anybody is from Louisiana specifically the area of New Orleans you can tell me whether or not that's a faithful recipe. I will believe you either way. I'm going to give you one more candy recipe for the kids and then a wedding punch for the adults once. Those kids have been burnt out by sugar and gone to sleep. The final one is divinity and this is like age old American Culture Food Divinity. I've heard about for years and years. I think I've tried at once or twice. It's an odd sort of fluffy candy but that's all I can really remember. It's kind of a creamy fluffy candy. Anyway it's two cups of white sugar. A half a cup of Corn Syrup a half a cup of water to egg whites a tablespoon of the Nila a half a cup of and Salt Cook Sugar Syrup and Water. Two hundred sixty five degrees pour over egg whites add salt vanilla nuts and beat till creamy on the back. It says to make seafoam which is a different kind of candy. I Guess Substitute Brown sugar for the white sugar and use a quarter cup of Syrup instead of the Half Cup of Syrup for divinity. Okay so we've got to last candies divinity and seafoam now for those households that indulge in alcohol. I have something for you. It is wedding punch and I think they must want you to serve it to everybody before they write the checks to put in the purse. I'm not sure for every twenty people to be served. So this is twenty people's worth of wedding punch if you make it and you put it in the refrigerator seal tightly so that the alcohol doesn't evaporate and make sure you market with like three X.'s. And a skull and crossbones like they do in the cartoons so that the kids won't go near it slice a half a pineapple police in a bowl with a cup of sugar syrup. And I don't know if that's a preordained recipe for Sugar Syrup or if you can use Carol I have no idea a cup of lemon juice two cups of pineapple juice one and one half fifths of rum. Whoa that's a lot of rum. Chill at least two hours poor over a block of ice add to courts of sparkling water and one pint of sliced strawberries. Oh my that's fancy. Well that may not be something that we can make wall. We're stuck at home but it's something to plan for for the future anyway. I wanted to give you some recipes. That would make you laugh. Because they're fun and I don't know they're not necessarily practical at least some of them but some of them probably are and if your kids are going to be going out of their minds anyway and you have to home school them. You know home accused to be a class. It actually used to be required for graduation my school so give it a try. Why Not Otherwise? Keep IT SWEET. Take care of yourself and above all wash your hands.
