Personal Notes:
A good candy thermometer is the best purchase you can make if you are going to be a candy maker. The first time I made this recipe I was 17. I did not have a candy thermometer so winged it. Put in the bottom of our small fridge freezer to try to set it up. I mean poured it in there. Ha It must have still been good, as my sister’s boyfriend scraped it off the freezer bottom and ate it. I have perfected this recipe over the next 47 years.
