About this deal

Bring the mixture to about 150 C (145-150 depending on the humidity in your kitchen), take off the heat and add your flavour. a b "American Christmas Tree Journal". National Christmas Tree Association. 2005. p.40 – via Google Books. St. Nicholas Day is celebrated on the anniversary of his death in 343 A.D. The candy cane is said to represent the crozier, or bishop's staff, of St. Nicholas. {{ cite magazine}}: Cite magazine requires |magazine= ( help) Repeat the same with the red mixture, only this time don’t pull for so long, otherwise the red becomes too opaque and gets little too light in colour. If you don’t have any wrapping paper or cellophane, use a large jam jar or other airtight container to store your Christmas candy sweets. The humidity in your house will make them eventually softer, but they will keep for a few days. Why not stay in touch…

Bowers, Paige (September 10, 2019). "Bobs Candies". New Georgia Encyclopedia . Retrieved February 19, 2022. Start by pulling the lighter sugar mixture. You can see that at the beginning the mixture is see-through, but as you carry on pulling and twisting the rope, it gets more and more opaque. After few minutes the sugar starts to dissolve, but if you test it with a wooden spoon, you can still see sugar crystals that are not fully dissolved. Keep it on very low heat and wait a little longer until all is dissolved.

Boston: Dutton and Wentworth, for the association. 1837. p.25 – via Google Books.

On Saint Nicholas Day celebrations, candy canes are given to children as they are also said to represent the crosier of the Christian bishop, Saint Nicholas; [2] crosiers allude to the Good Shepherd, a name sometimes used to refer to Jesus of Nazareth. [15] [16] See also [ edit ]

The smaller puddle of the sugar mixture needs to be coloured with red gel colouring. You only need a tiny amount, which still gives you strong red colour. The large puddle of the sugar mixture is not being coloured, but if you have white gel colour, you can use that. Parkinson, Eleanor (1844). The Complete Confectioner, Pastry-Cook, and Baker. Philadelphia: Lea and Blanchard – via Google Books. I’ve divided the mixture into two parts – one – large one for the white element of the candy cane and smaller one for the red stripes.

Depending on the type of your peppermint flavour you might need to add 1-2 teaspoons of the extract. I’ve added 2 teaspoons and the flavour was fairly minty, but not overpowering. Here are the tools and equipment I use to make my traditional sweets recipes. To make this candy cane recipe, you’ll need: First of all mix all the ingredients (apart from the colour and peppermint extract) in to a medium size pan and put on a very low heat.

Make sure that they are no sugar crystals on the side of the pan, by brushing them down with pastry brush dipped into hot water.Test the sugar again – this time the spoon is much clearer and the sugar liquid is fairly transparent. Leave it for couple more minutes and then bring the mixture to the boil and carry on boiling on a medium heat. Don’t be tempted to steer the mixture, it would crystallise it. Webb, Val (2010). Stepping Out with the Sacred: Human Attempts to Engage the Divine. London: Continuum. p.79. ISBN 978-1-4411-9642-2– via Google Books. The image of Jesus as the good shepherd spoke volumes to the early Church as a metaphor for Divine care such that bishops, in time, carried a shepherd's crook (crosier) with its hooked end to symbolize "pastoral" care (pastoral meaning "of or relating to shepherds or herders")— interestingly, the hook on some crosiers ends in a snake's head.
