OLD FASHIONED ROCK CANDY

By Nancy J. Patrykus Finnjin


This was fun and so easy to make.
Grandma lived on a farm, and had to make her own candy...to give to us grandchildren,when we visited.
She would also make her own
"sugar nipples" for when the babies cried.
A homemade pacifier!
She wet the corner of a hankie, dipped it in sugar,twisted it , tied a not and let the crying baby suck on it!!! It always worked!!
Talk about a sugar high!!!!

    Question: can I put in flavoring like peppermint, chocolate, or anything like that? I want to experiment

    I'll bet a lil extract would be fine, I'm putting in a lil coloring!
    I know when my grandmother made it she did peppermint!
