DIRECTIONS

  • Combine 3 tablespoons of gelatin with 1/2 cup cold water and let stand for an hour.
  • In the meantime, heat 2 cups of sugar, 3/4 cup light corn syrup, 1/2 cup of water, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
  • Bring it to a boil and cook until the firm-ball stage (244³F, 117³F).
  • Remove from the heat and pour it slowly over the gelatin, beating it constantly in a stand mixer.
  • Beat it for a good 15 minutes.
  • When it's thick but still warm, add 2 tablespoons of vanilla or other flavoring (mint, strawberry, orange, flower water, etc), if desired.
  • Spread the mixture in a pan that has been lightly dusted with cornstarch.
  • Let it dry for 12 hours, then cut into squares with scissors dusted with cornstarch, and store them in an airtight container.
