  • Gently heat the mixture, stirring with a wooden spoon, until sugar has dissolved; syrup has melted.
  • Bring to a boil, cover boil for 3 minutes, then uncover and boil until temperature reaches 285-degrees F on a candy thermometer.
  • Remove from heat stir in the baking soda, mixing well to allow bubbles to subside a little.
  • once you add the baking soda the mixture WILL bubble up quite a bit.
  • Again, make sure your pot is large enough or it will bubble over the sides.

  • Pour into greased platter, leave until just beginning to set.
  • Mark into squares with a lightly oiled knife.
