    Carambola's Note:

    Original licorice candy made with the licorice root. This is a delicious treat which is mildly laxative and alleviates symptoms of colds and flu. Warning: Licorice should not be used by those suffering from high blood pressure (it raises the BP quite a lot!), diabetes, glaucoma, heart disease or a history of stroke, kidney disease. Best avoided when pregnant. May cause water retention and loss of potassium. Do not use for more than 4 weeks consecutively.

      I definitely needed to adjust this recipe, and it is still simply coming out very rough due to the flour. Looks easy, is easy but results extremely disappointing.

      Result: edible but very disappointing, commercial product is better. I think powdered root a mistake, I think thats what's giving something of a sawdust like feel to the product. Would be better to extract flavour into solution and use that. I think commercial product has an element of fat/oil (and possibly a little gum/gelatine?)
