How To Make Sour Candy: Do You Dare To Go Therer
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

You consider yourself quite the cook- whipping out recipes that are handed down from generation to generation as well as busting out your own moves from time to time. They all you the kitchen guru. They call you the kitchen goddess. Now, they want to know if you can possibly learn how to make sour candy. Well, are you up to the challenge, kitchen guru?

Of course, you can look up the recipe for homemade sour candy on the internet or in a cookbook- if you are in the amateur league. But, for a kitchen pro like you, the first thing you are going to do is decide what kind of homemade sour candy that you want to make and then rework an old recipe, a stand by favorite with a whole new, nasty attitude and a take no prisoners flavor.

So, you start working. You chase the kids and minions out while you are creating your concoction, after all none of them need to know what is it the stuff, right? But, don’t chase them of too far away because you are going to need an official taste tester. When you are learning how to make sour candy the rule of thumb is if you can make a teen cry but still reach for more, it is just sour enough. If anyone faints, falls over or runs off, screaming into the night, you may have gone just a wee bit over the mark. Pull back, baby. The goal is sour candy not chemical warfare.

In the world of candy, even homemade sour candy, there are several different texture options to consider: hard and crunchy, soft and chewy and if you are really talented, a combination candy that can do a little of both. Maybe it has a hard and crunchy shell on it and a soft and chewy center. That is the best of both worlds and if you can bring that to your own version of homemade sour candy, you go right ahead and bring it.

After you monkey around with the recipe of your homemade sour candy and you get it right, at least in the eyes of your teens and their pals, you need to jot down some notes so that you can do the recipe again. You can always tell when a recipe is a hit when the kids are in there cleaning up the kitchen or washing out your pans in the hopes that you will make more right away. Just FYI: no matter what you do to them, that is never, ever going to happen to Brussels sprouts.

In the world of the true kitchen goddess, the desire to show off for others that are not in the blood line is inherent. And, while you might want to take your homemade sour candy on the road, it might be a good idea to refrain from taking it to the kid’s bake sale or other event- having a bunch of teachers puckering and winking at one another might be a very bad idea indeed.
