Any self-respecting Christmas tree has a right to complain If it isn't decked out with a candy cane. The sugar, water, syrup, and cream of tartar you combine and heat till the sugar's dissolved real fine.
Divide into two saucepans, boil, but don't stir, please, Until each lot 280 degrees. Add ½ ts peppermint to each lot and add the coloring to one, the other not: place on an enamel or marble table to cool. (First oiling the table, as a general rule). Like taffy you stretch and pull and form into ropes of red and white, now twist them around again and again.
And form them into your candy cane.
Now on an oiled surface you allow them to harden, then announce to your family that these is ready for your Christmas tree. FROM: DOLORES MCCANN (BSWN00A)
