I found this in another old cookbook, and I haven't tried it yet. It looks like a challenge.

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1/2 c
cold water
2 c
sugar
essence of peppermint

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put water and sugar into clean saucepan and boil slowly, without stirring, until it spins thread from the tip of a spoon dipped into it. Take from the stove, leave it untouched until it is about "blood-warm", then stir steadily, always in one direction until the mixture begins to become creamy. Flavor to taste with peppermint, adding cautiously so as not to get the flavor too strong.
2
Drop by teaspoonful upon waxed paper, being careful not to put the drops too close together. A candy dipper works better to do this, if you have one.
