Day 28: Anise Hard Candy
Anise candy always reminds me of my mom. I remember her standing over the stove making it on Christmas Eve. She would put green food coloring in it and I would have to try my best to be patient as she made it.
Anise Hard Candy
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup corn syrup
1 cup water
Dash of salt
¼ tsp anise extract
Green food coloring
Grease a cookie sheet well and set aside. In a small saucepan; combine all the sugar, corn syrup, water, and salt. Stir over medium heat until It reaches a boil.
Once it boils DO NOT STIR again until it is done. Reduce heat to low.
