Looks great, dude! The cherry batch we made and showed you turned out pretty decent. I don't really know what to think about it, I still need to perfect the flavor. It aint bad, though. Lady and I have our orange version down to a science, though. Glad I could be of some help! Let me know how it's all going for you with flavoring and stuff. I'm taking down my recipes for each flavor once I've got it perfect.
Lady is interested and wants me to ask you to take a picture when you've got it looking right. Good luck to ya!
Alrighty, best of luck to you and let me know how it goes.
Alrighty, here's my imgur album with some basic instructions for you.
As for not having a candy thermometer, neither do I. Do you have a meat thermometer that goes up to around 300? It's pretty much a necessity to make sure it's heated that high because at 300 it reaches the "hard crack stage."
Alrighty, we made a batch. Here's the ingredient list for a medium batch.
Almost 2.8 cups white sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
4 teaspoons flavoring
Mix the sugar, water, and corn syrup and then mix them together over med-high heat and stir until it's starting to bubble. Once it's good and boiling you can stop stirring. Let it boil in medium high to high heat until it hits about 305 degrees F to be safe. As soon as it hits that, take off the heat and add the flavoring and color. Be quick but safe. Once it's mixed all in, pour it out onto your sheet. Personally, I use powdered sugar to coat my pan instead of a spray. It adds a little something to it. If you want to make fake crystal meth though, you probably don't want that. Let it cool and then smash it!
As for your other question I don't have any idea actually. I use a liquid flavoring and dye.
Once I am back on my PC ill give you a link to my imgur where I have pictures of the whole process.
Found what was going wrong I believe. In that video you linked it says to heat it to 285 degrees. I have found that taking it off the heat before 300 will result in a sticky mess rather than a hard candy. Another few things is do not let it sit after you take it off the heat. Immediately put in your flavoring and your dye and stir it in until it's even (normal food coloring is OK to use) Work very fast but safe to make sure it's even then pour it into a pre prepared baking sheet as soon as you get the shit mixed in. I have my ladyfriend here so we'll try to make a batch after we go get some lunch and we'll document it for you.
Saw your avatar, decided who the hell needs to sleep tonight.
