In presenting this selection of choice recipes 
for Candy Makers we have endeavored to avoid 
everything that is not practical and easy to 
understand. The recipes given are from the most 
experienced and notable candy makers of America 
and Europe, and are such, that, if followed out 
with care and attention will be sure to lead to suc 
cess. Practice is only to be had by experiment, 
and little failures are overcome by constant 

After the rudiments have been thoroughly 
mastered, the reader has ample scope to distin 
guish himself in the Candy world, and will do so 
with patience and perseverance. We trust our 
patrons will look upon this work, not as a liter 
ary effort, but as instruction from a practical 
workman to a would-be workman.

This branch of the trade or business of a con 
fectioner is perhaps the most important. All 
manufacturers are more or less interested in it, and 
certainly no retail shop could be considered orthodox 
which did not display a tempting variety of this class. 
So inclusive is the term " boiled goods " that it embraces 
drops, rocks, candies, taffies,, creams, caramels, and a 
number of different sorts of hand-made, machine-made, 
and moulded goods. It is the most ancient method of 
which we have any knowledge, and perhaps the most 
popular process of modern times ; the evidence of our 
everyday experience convinces us that (notwithstanding 
the boom which heralds from time to time a new sweet, 
cooked in a different manner, composed of ingredients 
hitherto unused in business), it is the exception when 
such goods hold the front rank for more than a few 
months, however pretty, tasty, or tempting they may 
be, the public palate seems to fall back on those made in 
the old lines which, though capable of improvement, 
seem not to be superceded. Of the entire make of con 
fectionery in Canada, at least two-thirds of it may be 
written down under the name of boiled sugar. They 
are undoubtedly the chief features with both manu 
facturers and retailers, embracing, as they do, endless 

Soda Founts, Generators, Cylinders, Etc. .5 

facilities for fertile brains and deft fingers for inventing 
novelties in design ; manipulation, combination, and 
finish. Notwithstanding the already great variety; 
there is always daily something new in this depart 
ment brought into market. Many of the most success- 

o *j 

ful houses owe their popularity more to their heads than 
their hands, hence the importance of studying this 
branch in all its ramifications. The endless assortment 
requiring different methods for preparing and manipulat 
ing make it necessary to sub-divide this branch into 
sections, order and arrangement being so necessary to 
be thoroughly understood. When ice consider the few- 
inexpensive tools required to make so many kinds of sale 
able goods, it is not to be wondered at so many retailers 
have a fancy to make their oicn taffees and such like, there 
is no reason why a man or woman, tcith ordinary patience, 
a willing and energetic disposition, favored with a fair 
amount of intelligence, should not be able to become with 
the aid of THIS BOOK and a few dollars for tools, fairly 
good sugar boilers, tcith a few months pr act ice. 

There are reasons why a retail confectioner should 
study sugar boiling. It gives character to the business, 
a facinating odour to the premises, and a general at- 
homeness to the surroundings. No goods look more 
attractive and tempting to the sweet eating public than 
fresh made goods of this kind. A bright window can 
be only so kept by makers. Grainy or sticky drops 
may be reboiled ; scraps and what would otherwise be 
almost waste (at least unsightly) may be redressed in

another shape, and become, not only saleable, but pro 
fitable. There are many advantages which a maker 
sesses over one who buys all. For instance, clear boiled 
oods should be kept air tight, and are therefore 
delivered to the retailers in bottles, jars, or tins, on 
which charge is made, these have to be repacked and 
returned. Breakages are an important item, so is 
freight the cost of the latter is saved and the former 
reduced to a minimum. 

Whatever means are adopted to benefit the retailer 
and advertise the business by brighter windows, cleaner 
shops, less faded goods, and healthier financial condi 
tions must contribute to the general prosperity of the 
trade, from the bottom step to the top rung of the 

It should be the aim of all amateurs to study 
quality rather than price. Goods well made, carefully 
flavored, and nicely displayed will always command a 
ready sale at a fair price, giving satisfaction to the con 
sumer and credit to the maker. Give your customers 
something to please the eye as well as the palate, so 
that every sale may be looked upon as an advertise 
ment. Cheap, bulky, insipid stuff is unprofitable and 
damaging to the trade as well as ro the seller. I 
venture to assert that more would-be makers have come 
to grief trying to cut each other in price for rubbishy 
candies than through any other cause. Look at the 
number of firms who have a reputation, whose very

name command trade at good pr ices, year after year add 
to the turnover. What is the talisman ? Look at their 
goods. There is perhaps nothing very striking in them, 
but they are invariably good, busy or slack they are 
made with care, packed with taste, and delivered neatly 
in a business-like fashion. Compare this to our makers 
of cheap stuff ; to obtain orders they sell at unprofitable 
prices, often at a loss, and try to make up the difference 
by resorting to various methods of increasing the bulk, 
the result is ultimate ruin to themselves, loss to their 
creditors, and injury to every one concerned. Few who 
read these lines will not be able to verify all that is 
stated. The writer s advice has always been to keep up 
a high degree of excellence, try to improve in every direction, 
and success is only a matter of patience, energy and 

It is not intended to give a complete list of all kinds 
of candy known in the trade, that would be absurd and 
impossible. To be able to make any particular kind 
will require knowledge only to be gained by experience, 
so that much depends on the thoughtful endeavor of the 


Sugar boiling, like every other craft, requires a 
place to do it, fitted with tools and appliances. The 
requisites and requirements can be easily suited to the 
purse of the would-be confectioner.

A work to be useful to all must cater for all, and in 
clude information which will be useful to the smaller 
storekeeper as well as the larger maker. To begin at 
the bottom, one can easily imagine a person whose only 
ambition is to make a little candy for the window fit for 
children. This could be done with a very small outlay 
for utensils. The next move is the purchase of a sugar 
boiler s furnace not very costly and certainly indispen- 
sible where quality and variety are required, it will be 
a great saving of time as well as money, the sugar will 
boil a much better color, so that cheaper sugar may be 
used for brown or yellow goods, while one can make 
acid drops and other white goods from granulated. 
Dutch crush, or loaf sugar, which would -be impossible 
to make on a kitchen stove from any sort of sugar.

Having so far got our workshop arranged the next 
thing is to keep it in order. Sugar boiling is dirty 
sticky business, especially on wet days, unless every 
part is kept scrupulously clean and dry, slabs and 
tables should be washed, no trace of sifting, scraps, or 
boiled goods, should be left exposed to the atmosphere 
during the night, the floor well swept, and a little clean 
sawdust put down every night. 

The comfort and ease in working in a clean place far 
more than offsets the trouble and time it takes to put it 
in order, besides the goods are much drier, brighter and 
easier to bottle or pack. Nothing is more unpleasant 
than to work with sticky slabs, slimy machines or dirty 
scales. The boil adheres to the slabs, sticks to the 
rollers, spoiling the shapes, and become cloudy and 
spotty in weighing. . We are not writing without know- 
ledge. Any one who has worked or visited small 
workshops can endorse the value of these remarks, and 
call to mind this imaginary picture. However, there 
are exceptions, still the hint will be useful in a good 
many cases. 


If the learner will study the following instructions, 
the author guarantees to place him in a position to boil 
sugar as correctly as the most experienced workman. 
To accomplish this, the reader should provide himself 
with the sugar boiler s tools named on the preceding

page. While the sugar is undergoing the process of 
boiling, it is almost impossible for a learner to deter 
mine the exact degree which the sugar has attained 
without a thermometer, and even the journeyman finds 
it so useful that vou will find very few indeed who boil

sugar without it ; in fact many of the larger shops will 
not allow a sugar boiler to work without one. For 
almost any purpose the following degrees will be found 
all that is necessary. For instance put into the pan in 
which you intend to boil, 7 Ibs. granulated sugar to 
gether with one quart of w r ater, placing it on the fire 
and allow it to boil. Put a cover over the pan and 
allow it to boil for ten minutes ; then take off the cover 
and put the thermometer in the pan, immersing the 
bottom part of it in the boiling sugar, and let it remain 
there until the sugar is boiled to the degree you require. 
The following five degrees are those used by confec 
tioners for different purposes :

1st. The smooth, viz., 215 to 220 by the thermo 
meter. When the mercury registers these figures the 
sugars may then be used for crystalizing creams, gum 
goods and liqueurs. 

Fine Flower and Essence Flavors. 15 

2nd. The Thread, viz., 230 and 235 is the degree 
which is used for making liqueurs. 

3rd. The Feather, viz., 240 to 245. Only a few 
minutes elapse between these degrees, and the sugar 
must be watched closely during the boiling at this point. 
This degree may be used for making fondants, rich 
creams, cream for chocolates and fruit candying. 

4th. The Ball, viz., 250 to 255. The sugar at this 

point is used for making cocoanut and other candies 


cocoanut ice, and almost every description of grain 
sugar generally. 

5th. The Crack, viz., 310 to 315. This is the degree 
which is used, with little variation, for all kinds of 
drops, taffies, and all clear goods, whether for the pur 
pose of passing through machines or manipulating with 
the hands. 

These degrees can be tested by an experienced hand 
without the aid of the thermometer, and the learner may 
accustom himself by trying them in the following man 
ner : Take the stem of a clay pipe and dip it into the 
sugar as it boils, draw it out again and pass it through 
the forefinger and thumb ; when it feels oily you will 
find by looking at your thermometer that it has reached 
the degree of smooth, 215 to 220 by the glass. 

The next degree or thread, may be tried by your 
taking a little of the sugar off the pipe between your 
finger and thumb and part them gently ; if you see small 

16 Fletcher Manufacturing Co., Toronto. 

threads hang between your finger and thumb that 
degree has arrived. 

For the degree of Ball, 250 to 255, you must have 
by your hand a small jug of cold water ; when you draw 
the pipe out of the sugar dip it in the water, and when 
taken out of the water, if you can work it like a piece of 
putty, you have got the degree of ball. 

The degree of Crack must be tested the same way, 
and the sugar must leave the pipe clean ; dip it again in 
to cold water ; when off the pipe break off a piece with 
your teeth ; if it snaps clean in your teeth, pour your 
sugar on the slab at once. 

NOTE.- -This last degree must be tried sharply, in 
giving the process for trying it without the thermometer. 
We caution all beginners to get a thermometer, as 
practice alone can instruct you without. It is also 
necessary to state that thermometers differ a little, and 
should be tested. 

During hot weather, it is necessary to bring the 
sugars up to the full degree ; during winter months, the 
lower degrees marked will answer the purpose. 


Almost all sugar, especially refined, whether loaf, 
crystallized or granulated, and most sugars known to 
the trade as pieces will, if boiled beyond the degree 
of ball, or 250 by the thermometer, when turned out

ately a solid lump of hard opaque sugar. To prevent 
this candying, as it is called several agents are used, 
such as glucose, cream of tartar pyroligneous acid, vine 
gar &c. ? the action of which will cause the sugar to boil 
clear, be pliable while hot and transparent when 
cold. It is therefore necessary to use some lowering- 
agent for all boilings intended for clear goods, such 
as drops taffies, rocks. &c.

Experience has taught most of the old hands that 
two of these -agents possess all the merits necessary for 
the purpose, and are to be preferred to others for reasons 
it is unnecessary to state they are cream of tartar and 
glucose. A great deal could be said in favor of either 
or both ; cream of tartar is handier and cleaner to use 
as well as more exact in its action ; goods boiled with it 
will be a better color and, some assert, more crisp ; for 
acids and all best and export goods it is to be recom-

mended use a proportion of half an ounce to every 14 
Ibs. ot sugar we say about, as some strong sugars 
require a little more, this is generally measured in a 
teaspoon, two spoonfulls to every 14 Ibs. of sugar. 

Glucose, being cheaper than sugar, is valuable to the 
confectioner, not only for its lowering qualities, but also 
as a bulk producer, reducing the cost of the product. On 
this account there is a tendency to overdo it by using too 
much, the result causing goods to become sticky and 
turn soft immediately they are exposed to the atmos 
phere, not only so, but we have seen drops running to 
a solid lump in bottles through being overdosed. If 
glucose is used in proper proportions, it makes an excel 
lent lowering agent, and will answer the purpose first 
rate for ordinary drops and the like. Use three Ibs. of 
glucose to every 14 Ibs. of sugar ; keep a panful on the 
furnace top, so that it will always be hot and may be 
easily measured by means of a saucepan or ladle holding 
the exact quantity ; add the glucose when sugar begins 


to boil. 


These form almost as important a part of the trade 
as the sugar itself, and it should be the chief object of 
every workman to try and excel in these two important 
features ; if you do not use good flavors, it is a moral 
certainty you cannot produce good candies. Flavors for 
boiled sugars should be specially prepared, those bought 
at an ordinary chemist shop may do very icell for flavoing

custards and pastry, but are of no use for boiled sugars, in 
fact better use no essence at all, as tJiey are so weak that,, to 
give the drops &c., even a slight taste the quantity re 
quired reduces the degree to which the sugar has been 
boiled so much that it works like putty, and sticks to 
the machine while being pressed through ; the drops 
when finished look dull, dragged and stick together 
when bottled ; tons of drops are weekly spoiled by small 
makers using such flavors, while a little trouble and less 
expense would put them out of their misery, besides 
giving to the goods that clear bright dry appearance 
to be found in the drops of a respectable house. 

It must be remembered that the flavor is the very life 
of the candy. Color may please the eye, but excellence 
in that alone is not all that is required. A buyer may be 
attracted by the eye, but he does not eat with it. Neither 
old or young would knowingly eat only colored sugar. 
A sweet taste may be satisfied with sugar alone. 

It is the variety of pleasant flavors that is desired and 
it is the business of the confectioner to supply it. Flavors 
for sugar boiling should be as concentrated as it is pos 
sible for it to be. Several large houses who have con 
fined their attention to the wants and requirements of 
the confectionery and mineral w r ater trades have suc 
ceeded in producing fruit essences of quality, which is a 
pleasure to work with. Being very powerful, little is re 
quired to give the boil rich flavor, consequently it passes 
through the machine easily, forming a perfect drop on

which the clear imprint of the engraving characteristic of 
themachine used. Essential oils usedby confectioners are 
those having an agreeable aromatic flavor, and should 
be used in their original strength, without being adult 
erated or reduced. It is absolutely necessary that they 
should be pure and fresh, more particularly the oils of 
lemon and orange, as when not fresh and pure they par 
take of the flavor of turpentine, and are particularly 
unpleasant to the taste. 

Small makers would do well to buy carefully from a 
good house not more than would be used up in two or 
three months, especially the two before mentioned. 
Some oils on the contrary, improve by keeping such as 
peppermint and lavender. All essences and oils are best 
kept well corked in a cool dark place. 

These oils being powerful, popular and expensive, 
they are frequently adulterated. Cream of tartar and 
tartaric acid on a count of the price is often increased, 
the former with different cheap powders, the latter 
usually with alum. Many people fail in the proces 
through no fault of their own, but simply through their 
being supplied with inferior indregients, it is therefore 
of importance, that colors and flavors should be pur- 
chaned at some respectable house ; get list of oils

To make an acid drop to perfection, the pan must 
not only be clean but bright ; use best white sugar, and 
just enough water to melt it, with a little extra cream 
of tartar (no glucose) ; boil on a sharp fire to 305 ; after 
passing through machine, well dust with icing sugar 
and bottle. Beginners should not try to work with 
less water, as the boil is more liable to grain, which can 
1)3 seen by an expert and avoided. Before putting on 
the boil see that there is sufficient fuel on the furnace 
to carry through the operation. To make up a fire during 
the process spoils the color and quality. The sharper the 
sugar is boiled the better the appearance and durability. 

When boiling common sugars have the pan large 
enough, some throw up a good deal of foam when they 
reach the boiling point and are liable to flow over watch 
closely, and if unable to beat the foam down, lift the pan 
on the side of the fire a few minutes until boiled through. 

Manv weak sugars burn on a clear fire before thev 


come to a degree of crack. In this case sprinkle a little 
fresh fuel or ashes over the fire and replace the pan 
again. Should it again c:itch,repeat the operation nursing 
it up to the desired degree. Bad boiling sugar is very 
troublesome. A good plan is to make a rule of straining

the batch just aft >r it boils, through a very fine copper 
wire or hair seive, this prevents foreign matter 
s-ich as grit, saw dust or even nails, which is often 
mixed with the sugar getting into the goods. Keep 
thermometer when not in use in jar of water standing on 
the furnace plate by the side of the pan, wash out the jar 
and fill with cold water every morning; keep the ther 
mometer clean, especially the top part, as the sugar 
which adhers to it becomes grainy, and might spoil a 
whole boil. After making many dark candies thoro 
ughly wash the thermometer before putting into alight 

In using colors for drops and clear goods, use them 
in the form of a paste where practicable, then you can 
mix them in when the boil is on the slab, thus saving 
your pan; keep the colors damp in jars, look over them 
every night, and, where necessary, add a little cold water 
to keep them moist, or the top may get dry and hard, 
whi jh would make tae goods specky. Use a separate 
pieco of stick for each color to rub in with, and be care 
ful not to use too much color ; a very little goes a lone-

way with clear boiled goods. Goods arc more often 
spoiled by using too much than too little ; more can 
always be added if the shades are too light, but there is 
no remedy if you have added too much. When color 
ing taffies, this must be done in the pan ; liquid colors 
are best ; trouble will be saved if used in the following 
order. Suppose Raspberry, Everton and Lemon taffies 
were Avanted, make the Lemon tafifv first, add saffron 

f u / 

Candy Makers Tools and Machinery 23 

just before the boil is ready, then the lemon, and pour 
out ; make the Everton taffy next in the same way, add 
the butter before the lemon ; then make the Raspberry. 
In this arrangement there is no necessity of steaming 
out the pan. Had the Raspberry taffy been made first, 
the pan would have to be cleaned out before the Lemon 
or Everton taffy could have been made, because it would 
have been red. 

Measure the flavors in a graduated glass ; wash out 
the glass frequently, or it will get rancid ; weigh the 
acid and see that it is well ground ; if it has become dry 
and lumpy, rub it down to a powder with a rolling pin 
or heavy bottle on a sheet of paper before using. In 
using fruit essences a little powdered tartaric acid 
throws up the flavor, half the essences will have a better 
effect. Put the acid on the boil after it has been poured 
on the slab in a little heap, and pour the essence over it, 
then thoroughly incorporate the whole. 

Use the best oil for the slab with a clean flannel 
cloth ; keep the cloth in a saucer, if it lies about it falls 
on the floor and picks up dirt and carries it to the pour 
ing plate. When it gets hard or gritty burn it at once 
and get a new one, or it may be used by mistake and 
make a mess. We have seen the beauty of a boil spoilt 
scores of times by using dirty rags and rancid oil. A 
sugar boiler cannot be too careful in these little details, 
the success of his work largely depends upon it. It is 
easy to inaugurate a good system, and much more com 
fortable to work to it than a slovenly " what shall I do

next" sort of a method. Know where to find and put 
your hand on everything ; when the boil is hot there is 
no time to look for what you require. A place for 
everything and everything in its place " should be a 
practical feature in every boiling shop. 


Perhaps there is nothing more annoying to the 
trade than sticky boiled sugars. All clear goods when 
exposed to the atmosphere will turn damp, especially 
in wet weather. It is a question of degree, some slightly 
and some will run almost to syrup ; it is impossible to 
obviate the former but the latter can be prevented. 
Great care should be used in adding the lowering, 
whether cream of tartar or glucose, too much of either 
will cause the goods to run immediately after they are 
turned out. Weak or inferior sugars, or not sufficient 
boiling, has also this effect. We know of no reliable 
agent which will altogether prevent this result but we 
do know that a careful arrangement of the different 
proportions, using good sugar and well boiling greatly 
mitigate, if not altogether prevent the grievance. 
Goods intended for exposure should contain just sufficient 
lowering to prevent the boil from growing grainy and 
boiled right up to the standard. Of course different 
sugars will carry more or less lowering, but this can be 
easily tested by the workman. A few experiments will 
determine the exact quantity for each boil. There is 
no excuse for drops sticking in bottles when corked, 

Fruit Oils, Essential, Oils, Extracts, Etc. 25 

this should not occur, if it does, the fault is in the mak 
ing ; the water has a great deal to do with causing the 
candies to le sticky. The writer has experienced this- 
in several country places, where the only supply of this 
indispensable ingredient was drawn from the artesian 
wells. To look at it, it was all that could be desired- 
a beautiful, cold, clear and wholesome beverage. Of its 
chemical constituents I do not pretend to give an 
opinion, but the drops and other clear boils for which it 
was used got damp directly after they were exposed, 
and would have run to a syrup had they not been 
covered up. The goods keep all right in bottles, but it 

s very annoying, not to speak of the injury and loss to 
a business, when this is the position with regard to the 
water supply. The only remedy we could suggest, and 
which was very successful, was powdered borax. We 
used this in the proportion of a teaspoonful to every 
14 Ibs. of sugar adding it just as the sugar began to boil. 
Borax has been found useful with any water when mak 
ing goods to be exposed in the window or on the 
counters, such as taffies, rocks and clear boiled sugars 
generally. Where the supply of water, as in most large 
towns is suitable, given good sugar, cream of tartar or 
glucose, in proper proportions, and careful boiling up to 
the standard, the addition of borax is unnecessary and 
should only be resorted to under special circumstances,

PROCESS.- -This is an easy and capital recipe to be 
gin with. The process is practically the same as for all 
other clear goods, but the ingredients being fewer there 
is little chance of their getting complicated. With a 
thermometer it is hardly possible to make a mistake, 
besides it will make the instruction more intelligible ; 
should he not possess this appliance, we must ask that 
the instructions "How to boil sugar should be com 
mitted to memory, as it would be tedious and a great 
waste of time and space to keep explaining how to tell 
the different degrees through which the sugar passes 
before it comes to the point required for the different 
goods given in this book. For this and other reasons I 
will assume the learner to be working w y ith one. 

Put the sugar and water in a clean pan, place it on 
the fire and stir it occasionally till melted ; when it 
comes to the boil add the cream of tartar and put a lid 
on the pan ; allow it to boil in this way for ten minutes, 
remove the lid and immerse the bottom part of the 
thermometer in the boiling liquid and allow it to remain 
in this position until it records 810 degrees, then quickly 
take out the thermometer, lift off the pan and pour con 
tents into frames, tins, or on a pouring slab, which have 
been previously oiled. If on a pouring slab, mark the 
boil into bars or squares, while warm, with a knife or 
taffy cutter ; when quite cold it is ready for sale.

PROCESS. --Proceed as directed for plain taffy. 
When the sugar reaches 305 degrees, add a few drops 
of saffron color ; when it reaches hlO degrees, add a few 
drops of oil of lemon and pour out immediately into 
frames or tins ; or if on pouring slab, mark out into bars 
or squares before it gets cold. The pouring slab should 
be level so that the sheet should be all the same 


8 Ibs. White Sugar. Joz. Cream of Tartar. 

I Ib. Fresh Butter. 1 quart Water. 

Lemon Flavoring. 


PROCESS. --Melt the sugar in the water by an 
occasional stir when the pan is on the fire, then add the 
cream of tartar and boil up to 300, lift the pan on to the 
side of the furnace and add butter in small pieces broken 
off by the hand ; slip the pan on the fire again, adding 
the lemon flavoring ; let it boil through so that all the 
butter is boiled in then pour into frames ; when partly 
cold mark with cutter into small squares ; when cold 
divide the squares ; wrap each in wax-paper ; sold 
generally in one cent packages. 

N.B. There is good butter scotch and better butter 
scotch, but no bad butter scotch ; this quality may be 
improved by the addition of a large proportion of butter ; 
some makers would put 2 Ibs. or even 3 Ibs. to this 
quantity, but that would be regulated by the class of 
trade and the size squares. These frames are made to 
hold 144 squares ; a boil this size will make each square

weigh about 1 oz. ? but any weight of square may be 
arranged by the adding or deducting from the boil. 


12 Ibs. White Sugar. k oz. Cream of Tartar. 

2 Ibs. Dark Sugar. 2 quarts Water. 

2 Ibs. Fresh Butter. Lemon Flavoring. 

PROCESS. Melt the sugar in the water, add the 
cream of tartar and boil the whole to the degree of 
300 ; lift the pan on the side of the fire put in the butter 
in small pieces, place the pan again on the fire and let 
it boil through ; add the lemon and give it time to mix 
in, then pour out contents into frame, or on pouring 
plate to cut up into bars. Everton taffy and butter 
scotch are similar, except in color : same remarks as to 
quality will apply in both cases ; if the fire is very 
fierce, do not put the pan down flat on it after adding 
butter ; nurse it gently to prevent burning ; little fresh 
coke shaken over the fire would assist. 


14 Ibs. White Sugar. 2 quarts Water.

PROCESS.- -Bring the sugar and water to a boil, 
add the cream of tartar, put on the lid for ten minutes, 
then uncover and immerse the thermometer ; continue 
to boil to 300 ; tinge a bright red with liquid, brilliant 
rose ; add raspberry essence ; pour out on frame or 
pouring plate and mark into bars or squares of con-

venient size ; when cold the taffy is ready for packing 
and sale. 


10 Ibs Good Yellow Sugar. 3 Ibs Figs Chopped Fine. 
2 Ibs. Glucose. 3 pints Water. 

PROCESS. --Boil the sugar, water and glucose to a 
weak crack, .295 ; lift the pan partly off the fire, putting 
a piece of iron under it to prevent it burning; add the 
tigs, gently letting the whole thoroughly boil through 
and mix; pour in oiled tins or oil slab, and mark into 
squares. When adding the figs let them drop through 
the fingers, not in a heap. 


5 Ibs. Brown Sugar. 3 Ibs. Walnuts. 

5 Ibs. Crystal Sugar. 2 quarts Water. 

2J Ibs. Glucose. Lemon Flavoring. 

PROCESS. Shell the walnuts, peel off the skin chop 
very fine. Boil the glucose, sugar and water as before 
directed to the degree of weak crack, 300. Lift the pan 
a little from the fire ; add the prepared nuts by letting 
them run through the finger gently ; let the whole boil 
through, then add a few drops of the oil of lemon ; when 
thoroughly mixed in, pour out the boil and mark into 
bars before too cold. The flavor is improved by roast 
ing the walnuts a little before putting in the boil.

Prepare the meats by removing the thin reddish 
skin in which they are enveloped and fill a tray to about 
the depth of an inch. Pour over them the hot candy 
prepared as directed, stirring the meats till each one is 
covered. A little less candy should be used than will 
suffice to entirely cover the meats, though each separate 
one should be covered, the object being to use just enough 
of the candy to cause the meats to adhere firmly to 
gether, thus forming a large cake, which when nearly 
cold may be divided into squares or bars with a sharp 

Almonds and other nuts may be used in the same 
manner above described. 


5 Ibs. Brown Sugar. 2 Ibs. Glucose. 

5 Ibs. Crystal Sugar. 2 quarts Water. 

3 Ibs. Barcelona Nuts. Lemon Flavoring. 

Prepare the nuts by chopping them fine, boil the 
sugar, glucose and water to the degree 300. Remove 
the pan a little from the fire add the nuts carefully ; 
Avhen thoroughly boiled through and amalgamated, add 
a few drops of lemon and pour out contents into frame 
or on pouring plate and mark into bars.

PROCESS. Melt the sugars in the water, bring it to 
the boil, add the glucose and continue to boil to the 
degree 300 ; lift the pan a little way from the fire ; let 
the desiccated cocoanut run gently in the boil ; continue 
to boil until the lot is well mixed through ; add a few 
drops of oil of lemon and pour out in frames ; use the 
lemon cautiously, too much spoils the flavor.

10 Ibs. White Sugar. 1 Ib. Nonpareils. 

2|- Ibs. Glucose. 1 Cocoanut. 

3 pints Water. Brilliant Rose Coloring. 

PROCESS. Cut a large cocoanut into slices, dry them 
and lay them on the pouring plate in rows about half an 
inch apart ; sprinkle between them thickly some non 
pareil of various colors (hundreds and thousands). Boil 
to crack the sugar, glucose and water ; tinge with 
brilliant rose, and carefully and evenly pour the con 
tents over the pouring plate, disturbing the nut and 
nonpareil as little as possible. A good plan is to have a 
small shallow ladle with an open spout, into which pour 
a little of the boil, run over the plate a small stream 
from the ladle first, this w r ill bind the nut, etc., and keep 
them in their places while the bulk is being poured out. 


10 Ibs. Good Brown Sugar. 3 Ibs. Almonds. 
2 Ibs. Glucose. 3 pints water. 

Lemon Flavoring if desired. 

PROCESS. Split w r ith a sharp knife the almonds, lay 
them face downwards on an oiled plate, cover the plate 
as closely as possible; boil the glucose, sugar and 
water to the crack 305; remove the pan from the fire, 
and pour the contents carefully and evenly over the 
almonds; the addition of a little lemon or almond flavor 
ing will improve it. 

N.B. See remarks re-ladle in previous recipe.

10 Ibs. Brown Sugar. G Ibs. Swee: Almonds. 
2 Ibs. Glucose. ;> pints water. 

PROCESS.-Clean your almonds by blowing out all the 
dust and grit, pick out the shells, dissolve the sugar water 
and glucose; boil the lot up to crack; pour the contents 
on oiled plate. Sprinkle the almond all over the boil, 
shake over the lota few drops of oil of lemon; turn up 
the edges first, then the whole boil; mix and knead it 
like dough until all the almonds are well mixed in; no 

time must be lost in this process or the sugar will get 
too hard; when firm make a long roll of the entire boil, 

place it on a hard wood board, and cut it up into thin 
slices; it will have to be kept in shape while cutting, by 
turning over and pressing the sides as it bscomes flat ; 
a special large sharp knife is used for this purpose. A 
smaller boil than the above had better be tried by begin 
ners, say half the quantity. This can be done by halving 
the ingredients. Needless to state these remarks apply 
to other recipes. 


12 Ibs. White Sugar. 6 Ibs. Sweet Blanched Almonds. 
3 Ibs. Glucose. 4 pints water. 

PiioCESS,--Boil the sugar, water and glucose in 
the usual way to the degree of weak crack, 305 
by the thermometer, then ease the pan a little 
way off the fire, raid let the almonds gently slide 
into the mass. Use the spatula a little just to 

Bakers and Confectioners Tools and Machinery />;) 

keep the almonds from sticking to the bottom, 
stirring lightly only the one way, then watch the boil 
carefully till it-turns a light golden color; lift oft the pan 
and pour the contents into the frames. The almond will 
come to the top better in tins than in pouring plates. 

Of course a better quality is made by adding more 
almonds, or vice versa. The almond after being- 
blanched should be spread on a tin and dried, either on 
the stove top or in the oven. 


12 Ibs. White Sugar. 2 quarts water. 

3 Ibs. Raspberry Jam. Brilliant Rose Coloring. 

PROCESS. --Melt the sugar in water, and boil 
to ball 250 ; add the raspberry jam, and stir 
it well in; remove the pan from the fire, add 
sufficient coloring to make bright raspberry ; rub 
part of the mixture with spatula against side of 
pan until it changes a heavy opaque, then stir 
the whole mass until uniform. Pour the contents care 
fully on a slab, covered with greased paper ; make the 
sheet about i inch thick, mark into bars with a sharp 
knife, and break up when cold. 


6 Ibs. White Sugar. 2 pints water. 

2 Ibs. Apricot Jam or Pulp. Saffron Coloring. 

PROCESS. --Melt the sugar in the water and boil to 
ball, 250, add the jam or pulp. Stir well until thoroughly 
mixed in, remove the pan, rub part of the contents 

36 Fletcher Manufacturing Co., Toronto. 

against the side of the pan with spatula until cloudy and 
opaque; color with saffron a bright yellow, then stir the 
whole together until uniform cloudy; pour out in frames 
or on slab covered with oiled paper. A pinch of 
tartaric acid would improve the flavor, but often pre 
vent candying, unless in the hands of an expert. In any 
case the acid should be added in a fine powder after the 
whole has been thoroughly grained. A pallette knife is 
a very useful knife for rubbing the sugar against the 
sides of the pan. 


14 Ibs. Brown Sugar. 3 pints water. 
6 large Cocoanuts Sliced. 

PROCESS. Melt the sugar in the water, and boil to 
d3Tee of ball, then add the sliced cocoanut, stir them in 


remove the pan from the fire and rub the sugar against 
the side of the pan until it becomes cloudy stir the whole 
together until the whole becomes cloudy and thick; turn 
out the batch into tins or on slabs; mark with a sharp 
knife into squares or bars. When cold break it up at 
marks. Prepare the cocoanuts by cutting them up into 
thin slices with a spokeshave or machine. The brown 
skin is seldom skinned off for this dark candy.

Candy Makers Tool* and Machinery 37 

Melt the sugar in the water and boil to ball 250, add the 
sliced nuts, keeping the boil well stired. When thorough 
ly mixed, remove the pan from the fire and commence to 
grain with pallette knife or spatula until the whole mass 
turns an opaque white. Now turn out the batch into 
frames, or on the slab, which has been covered with 
paper ; mark into convenient sized bars, break up when 
set hard. 


1 Ibs. Brown Sugar. 4 Cocoanuts shredded. 
1 Ib. Pure Block Cocoa 3 pints water. 

PROCESS. When cracking the nuts, do so over a 
basin and save all the milk ; peel all brown skin off 
and cut the nut into fine shreds with machine ; dissolve 
the sugar in the pan with the water and cocoanut milk, 
boil up to ball, remove the pan a little off the fire, then 
add the nut together with the pure block cocoa, stir 
the whole together, grain on side of pan as before dir 
ected. Stir the whole well up and turn out into frames 
or on pouring plates. 

X. B. The pure cocoa should have been previously 
melted in a saucepan or chopped up in small pieces. 
In the latter case there is less waste, and the heat 
of the sugar would soon melt it. 


7 Ibs. White or Brown Sugar. I Ib. Sweet Almonds. 
1 Ib. Currants cleaned and dried. 2 pints water.

>vS Fletcher Manufacturing Co., Toronto. 

PROCESS.- -Mix together the fruits, which should 
have been freed from grit and dust ; boil the sugar and 
water to the degree of ball, 250 ; remove the pan from 
the fire ; gently grain the boil by rubbing a little of the 
syrup against the side of the pan until cloudy, then 
slide in the fruit and stir the whole together, adding a 
little saffron to color a bright yellow. See that the 
mass has changed to an opaque, then turn the lot out 
into frames or on a pouring slab. 


Fruits green, dried or preserved, almonds and 
nuts of almost every description, as well as flavors ai.d 
colors of a pleasant taste and pretty hue may be used 
in making candies. The process is exactly the same ; 
the ingredients can be arranged to suit the fancy of the 
maker and the palate of his customers. The field to 
select variety from soems in ex ha us table, so that new 
goods of this class should be introduced ad. lib. No 
good purpose could be served by giving a procession of 
these simple instructions, when with little thought and 
judgment anyone could invent a new candy for them 
selves. It might be as well to add that a little glucose 
or cream of tartar added will make the candies softer, 
and may ba used, if preferred, in each formula in the 
proportion of 2 Ibs. of glucose or a teaspoonful of cream 
tartar to every 10 Ibs. of sugar.

14 Ibs. White Sugar. -J oz. Oil Lemon. 

3 Ibs. Glucose. Saffron Coloring. 

4 pints water. 

PROCESS. --Put the sugar and water in a pan, place 
it on the fire, giving it an occasional stir until the 
sugar is dissolved, then add the glucose, or -J oz. cream 
of tartar either will do, but do not use both place 
the cover on. the pan and let it boil for ten minutes or 
so, (the cover is put on to steam the sides of the pan 
and keep it clean and free from granulation) ; take off 
the cover and put in the thermometer, immersing the 
bottom part in the boiling liquid. Let the whole boil 
until it reaches the degree of crack, 300 ; tinge with 
saffron, then pour the contents on pouring plate, which 
has been previously oiled ; sprinkle a few drops of oil 
of lemon over it, turn the edges as it begins to cool ; 
then turn it over, knead it up as soon as you can handle 
it ; if it is on a cool slab you must be pretty smart or it 
will get too hard. As soon as it gets stiff enough cut 
off small convenient pieces and pass through the barley 
sugar machine ; when cool break up, give them a good 
shake in a rough seive to free them from any machine 
scraps ; the drops are then ready for bottling. Powdered 
sugar is not usually mixed with these drops.

PROCESS. --Put the sugar and water in a clean bright 
pan, add the cream of tartar and boil up sharply co a 
weak crack, 300 ; pour the batch on oiled slab ; turn in 
the edges, fold the boil over, then put in powdered acid 
with a few drops of lemon ; knead the whole together, 
working one end down to a point ; draw it out the 
required thickness, the full length of the plate, cut it 
off, then do another length likewise, repeating the opera 
tion until the boil is worked up ; keep the first piece in 
shape by occasionally rolling tlfera while the remainder 
of the boil is being pulled out and shaped. When the 
boil is finished, and the sticks cold, snip them off in 
lengths with scissors. An assistant is very useful to

put on the lid for five minutes, continue boiling in the 
usual way till it reaches crack 300 ; now add sufficient 
coloring to tinge a golden color and pour the boil care 
fully over the smooth slab, so that the sheet of sugar 
will not be more than the eighth of an inch thick. 
When the sheet has partly set, cut it into strips one 
inch wide and the whole length of the sheet with scis 
sors. Let an assistant take charge of the strips and 
twist them by taking hold of an end in each hand and 
turn them in opposite directions, forming a spiral 
column ; when cold snip the required lengths and care

operators must be very quick in their movements. 
The slab must be warm on which the sugar is poured, 
as the thin sticks cool so fast and get brittle.

to weak crack, 300; pour the boil on oiled plate, flavor with 
peppermint and work well up ; in a smaller pan have 
two pounds of white sugar, with the usual proportion of 
cream of tartar and water boiled to the same degree ; 
pull this over the hook until white and porous ; remove 
it to the plate and work it down into lengths about one 
inch thick ; lay them longways on the solid boil, equal 
distances apart ; make the whole boil into a thick roll, 
bringing one end down to a point ; draw oft as for one 
cent sticks, but thicker ; then with scissors snip them 
off in pieces about an inch long. Hold the scissors in 
the right hand, the sugar in the left ; every time you 
make a clip turn the sugar half way round, so that the 
corners of each cushion will be at opposite angles. 

BULL S EYES, (Various. 

\ j 

The formula given for the different kinds of sugar 
sticks will answer for the variety of bull s eyes. The 
process and ingredients are precisely alike. The sticks 
may or may not be drawn out a little thicker, accord 
ing to the size of drop required. Cream of tartar may 
be substituted for glucose in all recipes given for boiled 
goods. The sugar is not boiled quite so high for hand 
goods or pulled sugar as it is for machine drops ; being 
a little lower it works better, keeps longer pliable, and 
is less brittle when cold. 


8 Ibs. Sugar. 3 pints water, 

2 Ibs. Glucose. Flavor. 


Fletcher Manufacturing Co., Toronto. 

PROCESS. Boil the sugar, water and glucose in the 
usual way to weak crack, say 300 ; pour the boil on the 
slab, color and flavor to taste ; work the batch up until 
stiffish, then roll the boil round, getting one end down to 
a point as directed for sticks, pull it off in lengths of 
about three feet and about one inch thick ; cut in pieces 
with "JACKSON BALL CUTTER" and roll round with the 
hand. An expert assistant is necessary for this opera 
tion, as the balls must be shaped while hot and kept on 
the move till cold. 


This cut represents our Improved 
Ball Cutter, or Press, which cuts 
only one size ball ; the improvement 
consists of a finger bar, operated by 
a cam, so that each time the handle 
is raised the fingers throw Out the 
balls from between the knives.

This general recipe will apply to all balls. For 
details of pulling, striping, casing and variety the 
reader is referred to the various processes given for 
sticks and bulls eyes. They are all made and finished 
in this way. For small sizes, pull out the lengths thin 
ner ; for large sizes, thicker. 

To make the various striped balls nicely, requires 
practice and a good deal of it. No amount of book learn 
ing will teach those who are quite ignorant of sugar boil 
ing ; but at the same time if the reader has mastered 
the simpler process at the beginning of the book, he is 
quite capable of understanding this and working out 
his own ideas in this way ; but hand-made balls should 
not be attempted until the learner feels confident he 
can manage a boil easily and quickly, because there is 
no time to think after the sugar is on the slab. The 
manipulation must now have been acquired to an ex 
tent so as to enable the operator to proceed as if by 
instinct .

See our stock of clear toy moulds, list of which is

all kinds of figures, such as dogs, cats, elephants, etc. 
They are very popular among the children and sell 
Avell in certain districts, and show a handsome profit. 
The moulds are generally made in two parts ; they 
must be well oiled ; the sugar boiled as for drops. FiJJ 

Pure l- ruit Juice*, Color*, Etc. 55 

the moulds full, and just before the whole mass sets, 
pour as much of the sugar out as will run ; this will 
leave only a thin coating which cling to the sides of the 
shapes and will easily come out when the mould is 
parted, then you have the figures complete but hollow. 
Boiled sugar whistles are made exactly the same way. 



Several descriptions of boiled sugars are sold 
erystalized, which look very pretty and stand exposure 
to the atmosphere better. The process is very simple 
and may be done with little trouble. When the drops 
have been made and set, break them up and sift them 
well in a coarse seive, now shake them over a pan 
which is boiling, so that they get damped by steam, 
and throw them in a heap of crystal sugar ; mix them 
Avell up, so that the sugar adheres to the drops uniform 
ly ; now sift them out of the sugar again and they will 
drv in a few minutes and be ready for packing. 


Another method is, when the drops have been made 
and sifted, to have a thin solution of gum or gelatine 
and shake it over them and rub them all together till 
damp all over ; now throw over them sufficient crystal 
sugar to. coat them and mix them up; when dry sift 
again and pack. 

N. B. When being crystalized the goods should 
be warm, not hot, or they will candy. Large French 
pears should be crystalized by the latter process and

be almost cold during the operation ; being bulky they 
retain the heat a long time, and therefore have a great 
tendency to grain.

Yellow Color. 

PROCESS. --Boil the sugar, glucose and water to 
weak crack, 305 ; pour the boil on slab, flavor with 
lemon and color yellow ; cut this boil in two and pull 
one-half over the hook ; roll the pulled half out in 
lengths about the size of a corn pod ; now put the plain 
yellow sugar through the Torn Thumb drop rollers, 
loosening the screws a little, and case the pulled sugar 
with sheets from the machine ; if done carefully, the 
result will be a good imitation of real Indian corn.

Pour on an oiled slab, and cut up to size ; when set, dust 
with powdered sugar. In large factories where this 
candy is made, machinery plays an important part. In 
fact the manipulation is practically all done by 
mechanism. There is the desiccator for preparing the 
cocoanuts, the steam pans, which are fitted with beaters 
revolving inside, fixed with chains and weights for 
lifting them out, so that the cans may be emptied and 
cleaned without trouble ; also plates for rolling out sheets 
to size, and cutting machines which cut the nuggets 
any size, the michirie being so arranged that by simply 
altering a pawl on a ratchet wheel the size of the 
nuggets is determined. Where this elaborate arrange 
ment exists our formula would neither be desirable nor 
necessary, nor do we pretend to suggest or advise. 
However, many tons are made in the ordinary boiling 
shop with the usual appliances and conveniences, and 
it is to assist people thus situated is the principal object 
of this took.

then put on the cover and let it boil for five or six 
minutes; now remove the lid and continue to boil to 
soft ball degree ; now pour the contents on a damp 
slab (one over which water has been sprinkled) ; when 
cool take a long flat spatula and work the sugar about 
until it becomes white and creamy ; now add the 
almonds (which have been previously blanched and 
dried), together with the vanilla essence ; keep working 
up the whole until of uniform consistency ; now spread 
the mass on wafer paper in sheets one inch thick, cover 
the sheets with wafer paper, rolling the top smooth ; 
when set cut into bars. Should the cream be a little 
thin add some icing sugar when mixing ; if toiled 
properly this is not required. Most cheap Nougats now 
in the market are made more or less according to this 
formula, color and flavor differently for variety.

Boil 7 Ibs. of loaf sugar with three pints of water ; 
add a small teaspoonful of cream of tartar, allow it to 
boil for 10 minutes, then add one pound of fresh butter : 
it will then commence to froth up, and care must be 
taken that the pan is large enough, as the syrup will 
occupy twice the space than if there had been no butter 
added ; boil this mixture to the degree of very weak 
crack, or 285 by the thermometer, at which point it is 
done ; pour it on the slab, which has been of course 
previously greased. As soon as it begins to cool, turn 
it up and knead it until it gets stiff enough to pull over 
the hook. When on the hook pull it sharp till it gets 
white as snow. This white is usually flavored with 
vanilla or oil of lemon. It may be either pulled out in 
bars or left in the heap. It is very easily broken in 
small pieces for retail purposes. In the summer or hot 
weather keep this candy from the air, or it will be 
inclined to be sticky. This eats very rich and com 
mands good sale at best prices. 



This is made exactly as the last with the addition 
of a little red color before the boil is poured out, or it 
may be colored on the slab ; add a little essence of rasp 
berry or strawberry and a pinch of tartaric acid just 
before pulling the boil. Color the raspberry a little 
deeper than the strawberry.

simple enough, but must be worked quickly, in fact 
the beauty depends upon the rapid manipulation of the 
sugar over the hook ; keep the eye fixed on the color ; 
as soon as it becomes a glossy satin with a close grain 
it is finished ; lift it off the hook immediately and return 
to the slab for casing. Do not carry on the pulling 
operation until it becomes spongy, and be careful not 
to use too much color ; the tints should be light and 
delicate when finished. Machines are made for cutting 
buttercups, price $6.00 and 14.00, each machine.

tar in the boiling pan and boil up to crack 310 in the 
ordinary way ; while the pan is on the fire, take the 
fondant paste and work into it the desiccated cocoanut, 
with a little essence of vanilla, and lay aside till re 
quired. When the boil has reached the required 
degree pour the sugar on the slab, color it light green, 
and when partly cool, pull over the hook until it be 
comes a delicate satin tint ; return it to the slab, press 
the boil out, lay the fondant paste in the centre and 
case it all around with the pulled sugar ; now carefully 
work the one end of the boil down to a point as for

sticks and draw it out in lengths, required thickness ; 
lay them on the machine and press gently until cut 
through ; the buttercups are then ready for packing. It 
is advisable to work small boils of these goods, as 
the casing being boiled soon gets brittle ; keep 
turning the bulk round on the plate so as to keep the 
fondant paste exactly in the centre.

This branch of the business has developed wonder 
fully during the last few years. This cream is not 
only moulded and worked into every conceivable shape,, 
size color and flavor by itself, but is used with choco 
late, fruits, etc., to make an endless variety of pleasing 
and tasty confections. The smaller goods in this work 
form the body, and sometimes the whole, of many 
beautiful mixtures, and no window can now be con 
sidered orthodox unless they have a good display of 
these goods. For our purpose the variety is a matter 
of detail which we only mention to remind the reader 
that he must look for the greater part of it outside the 
covers of this guide. The process is practically the 
same all through ; the mixing, flavors, colors and shapes 
make whatever distinction there is. It will only be 
necessary to give a fair selection of formulas to enable 
the reader to imitate anything he sees in this line, or 
invent something new.

usual way to the degree of soft ball ; then remove the 

Soda Founts, Generators, Cylinders, Etc. 75 

pan from the fire ; damp the pouring plate with cold 
water ; pour the boil on it and let it remain till nearly 
cold. With a long pallette knife or wooden spatula, 
commence to work the syrup until it changes to a white 
glossy cream ; then divide the batch into two ; put one 
part in the pan and remelt it, just enough to make it a 
consistency to mould, add vanilla flavor and run it into 
rubber moulds ; now put the other portion in the pan 
and remelt ; color it a light pink ; flavor with essence 
of raspberry and mould in the same shapes ; when the 
goods are set and cold crystalize them with cold syrup. 
N.B. Have everything very clean when making 
fondants ; every speck will show ; a touch of blue will 
make the white a better color.

small portion in the pan to remelt, adding the chocolate 
paste ; stir until paste is dissolved and incorporated, but 
do not let the cream boil ; remove the pan from 
the fire ; run chocolate cream in rubber moulds 
filling the impressions only one-third part full ; 
then melt the white cream, flavor with vanilla and fill 
up the moulds ; Avhen set crystalize in cold syrup ; each 
fondant will be in two colors, white tipped with chocolate.

damp pouring plate ; when nearly cold work up the 
whole with spatula till it becomes a white glossy cream, 
working the flavor in at the same time ; then divide 
into three equal portions, color one portion a bright 
pink and another a yellow, leaving the third white ; 
knead each portion into stiff paste, adding a little iceing 
sugar to make it tough ; pinch off small pieces and form 
them into balls about the size of the cherry, make them 
a little flat on one side ; on this flat part stick a half 
cherry, squeezing them into shape ; place them in can 
vas trays and put them in the drying room for a few 
hours to harden ; afterwards crystalize with cold syrup. 
Other preserved fruits may be used in same way.

7N Fletcher Manufacturing Co., Toronto. 

PROCESS.- -Boil the sugar, glucose and water as 
before directed to a stiff ball and pour the sugar on 
damp slab ; let it stand till nearly cold, then work it up 
with spatula till glossy cream ; divide the boil into as 
many portions as you want colors ; then remelt this 
cream, color and flavor to fancy ; run the batch into 
moulds of different shapes. When the fondants are set, 
crystalize in cold syrup. Fondants for mixture are 
made a trifle harder to prevent being crushed with 
other sweets with which they are mixed. 


13 Ibs. Best White Sugar. 4 pints Water. 

PROCESS.- -Boil this quantity of sugar and water 
for a feAV minutes, about 220 degrees by the thermom 
eter ; stand it aside undisturbed till quite cold. Pack 
the fondants in crystalizing tins, putting wire trays 
between each layer of say two inches deep ; let the 
wire trays take a bearing on the ends of the tin ; 
when the tin is full, cover the goods with cold syrup, 
putting a damp cloth over the top ; stand the tins in a 
cool place in the drying room about ten hours ; then 
remove them to a cold place ; about an hour afterwards 
take out the plugs and drain off the superfluous syrup ; 
when the fondants are dry, turn the tins on end, giving 
them a slight knock and empty them on clean trays ; 
they will be ready for packing in an hour or so. 

N. B.--If a thin skin forms over the top of the 
syrup, skim it off before draining the goods ; it may 

Candy Makers Tools and Machinery. 79 

tend to granulate them, but the damp cloth ought to 
prevent this skin forming. 



There are a great number of fancies made from 
grain sugars sold about Christmas time. Their beauty 
and attractiveness depends upon the moulds in which 
they are moulded, and the taste displayed in painting 
or decorating them. The goods themselves are quite a 
secondary consideration, being so simple to make. 

PROCESS. Boil 7 Ibs. sugar, 1 Ib. glucose, 2 pints 
water in the usual way to the degree of ball 250, by 
thermometer; remove it from the fire and rub the 
sugar against the side of the pan until thick and white ; 
stir it all together, then fill the moulds through the 
runner. Too much sugar must not be boiled at one 
time, or it will set before it can be all run into the 
moulds ; two or three pounds will be enough for a 
beginner to practice with. They will be hard enough 
to be taken out of the moulds in fifteen to thirty min 
utes, according to size after being run, and they will 
be ready for decorating. 


Fruit, eggs, and any object may be taken from 
nature by this process, to be transformed into sugar, 
afterwards glazed, colored to imitate nature so exactly 
as to deceive many persons. Boil the sugar in exactly 
the same way as directed in the previous recipe, grain 

SO Fletcher Manufacturing Co., Toronto. 

it and fill the moulds ; in a few minutes run out as 
much sugar as will leave the mould ; this will cause 
the casting to be hollow in the centre. Allow your 
articles to imitate the natural objects which they repre 
sent with liquid colors and camel s hair pencils ; if 
gloss is required the colors should be mixed with a 
strong solution of gum arable or isinglass to the desired

7 Ibs. White Sugar. 3 pints Water. 

2 Ibs. Glucose. Vanilla Flavoring. 

PROCESS. Dissolve the sugar with water in a clean 
pan ; add the glucose and boil in the usual way to the 
degree of feather, 243 ; pour the contents on a damp 
slab ; let it remain a few minutes to cool ; then with a 
pallette knife work it up to white cream, adding a tint 
of blue to bleach it ; when the whole has become a 
smooth cream, return it to the pan and melt it just 
sufficient that it may pour out smooth and level ; stir in

2 Ibs. Glucose. Raspberry or Rose Flavor. 

PKOCESS. Melt the sugar in the water, add the 
glucose and boil to 243 ; pour contents on slab, and 
when cool divide the boil into three parts ; color one 
part red, add some pure chocolate to another, and to a 
third add a pinch of blue, cream each part by rubbing 
on slab to a smooth paste ; in rubbing in the pure choco 
late, see that you have enough to make it a rich brown ; 
for red portion use just sufficient to give a light rose 
pink. When all finished, melt each portion separately 
in the pan just sufficiently soft to run to a level surface ; 
pour out first the red, then the chocolate on top of red 
sheet, then the white on top of chocolate ; this will make 
a cream cake to cut up into bars. Some do not take the 
trouble to melt the cream, being satisfied to spread the 
paste out, smoothing it on top with a pallette knife ; 
this answers the purpose but does not look so well.

light pink and put a small touch of blue in the other ; 
add the sliced cocoanut, half into each part, then com 
mence to cream them by rubbing. When both parts 
have been mixed into a smooth paste, it is ready for 
sale, being usually sold by cutting from rough block. 

N.B. Cut almonds, ground walnuts, etc., are used 
in the same way as directed for cocoanuts. The boils 


may or may not be flavored, but a little improves it and 
makes it fragrant. 


8 Ibs. Yellow Sugar. 2 Ibs. Glucose. 

1 quart Sweet Cream. 

Boil the sugar, glucose and cream to 242 on 
thermometer, stirring all the time ; when done lift oft 
the fire and let stand till nearly cold (placing it where 
it will cool quickly), then stir until it sets ; then melt 
over a slow fire (stirring constantly) until it becomes a 
nice creamy consistency, pour on a well greased tin, 
lay about one inch deep, let stand till cold, when by 
turning over the tin it will fall Out. After the batch is 
set to cool in the tin, on no account disturb it as it will 
make the cream crack into pieces when turning out. 
If this is too expensive a recipe use milk instead of 
cream and add half a pound of butter. 


7 Ibs. White Sugar. J Ib. Mixed Peel.

PROCESS. Prepare fruit by washing currants in 
cold water, afterwards drying them; stone raisins; 
blanch and chop almonds ; cut the peel in stripes, then 
mix them together, adding the spice ; boil the sugar and 
water to ball degree ; remove the pan from the fire ; 
grain the boil by rubbing the syrup against the side of 
the pan in the usual way ; when it becomes creamy, 
add the mixed fruit, carefully stirring the whole until 
thoroughly incorporated ; have some wet cloths ready, 
into which divide the boil ; tie them very tight and 
hang them up until set hard. The blanched almonds 
arc used to represent suet and should be chopped 


7 Ibs. Brown Sugar. J Ib. Raisins. 

2 Ibs. Glucose. J Ib. Mixed Peel. 

1 Ib. Currants. J oz. Mixed Spice. 

J Ib. Sultanas. 2 pints Water. 

PROCESS. Dissolve the sugar in the water and put 
the pan on the fire and add the glucose ; let the whole 
boil to a stiff ball, then pour the contents on a damp 
pouring plate ; when nearly cold commence to cream by 
rubbing and working it about the slab with pallette 
knife until it becomes opaque, stiff and creamy, have 
the fruit prepared and mix as in previous recipe, then 
work them into the boil with spatula ; now divide the 
boil into small basins, holding about one pound each ; 
press the cream well down and let them remain till set. 
Take them out, brush over them a thin solution of gum

and dust them with powdered sugar to represent frost 
ing. Before putting the cream in the basins, shake a 
little icing sugar over the basins, it will keep them 
from sticking. 


5 Ibs. White Sugar. 1 Ib. Almonds, blanched and 

1 Ib. Glucose. 3 pints Water. Dried. 

2 Ibs. Raspberry Jam. Liquid Brilliant Rose Color. 

PROCESS. Boil the sugar, glucose and water to the 
ball degree, 250 ; ease the pan off the fire, add the jam 
and almonds, with sufficient color to make the whole a 
bright red; let the batch boil through, keeping it stirred 
gently until thoroughly mixed ; now remove the pan 
from the fire and see if the batch has turned opaque ; if 
not rub some of the syrup against the side of the pan 
and stir until whole boil shows a little creamy, then 
pour out on wafer paper, keeping the sheet about three- 
quarters of an inch thick ; level the top down with pal- 
lette knife and cover with wafer paper ; when set re 
move to a clean board and cut into bars with a sharp 
knife. In running sheets to thickness, arrange the 
loose bars on the pouring plate to form a square in pro 
portion to the size of the boil. Almost any kind of 
jam can be substituted for flavoring Noyeau. 



It is necessary to know how to use up the scraps, 
siftings, spoiled boil candies and otherwise unsaleable

goods. People who make jam or liquorice goods know 
of course what to do with them ; but small makers 
often accumulate lots of waste which seems always in 
the way. This should be avoided as much as possible, 
not only on the ground of economy, but for the 
good order and general appearance of the workshop. 
Keep the acid scraps separate from the others ; have 
two pans (earthenware will do) and make it a rule, 
when sweeping down the plates, to throw the acid 
scraps into one pan and the others into the second pan ; 
keep them well covered with water, and, as the syrup 
then gets too thick, put in more water in order that the 
scraps may dissolve. When making dark goods such as 
cough candy, cough drops, cocoanut candy, stick jaw, 
etc., use a proportion of this syrup in each boil, dip 
ping it out with a ladle. As a rule a careful workman 
would use up his scraps every day. Some use the 
machine scraps by putting them in the next boil when 
sugar is on the slab. The writer s experience is that 
that method is objectionable, as it not only causes the 
boil to be cloudy, but very often grains it. Melt the 
acid scraps in water enough to form a thin syrup ; put 
in some whiting, powdered chalk or lime ; put the pan 
on the, fire and stir until whole boils ; see that all the 
scraps are dissolved ; remove the pan and let it stand 
for an hour, then strain through flannel. Use this 
syrup in the same way as the other for making com 
mon goods.

10 lbs. White Sugar. 2J Ibs. Glucose. 
3 pints Water. 

PROCESS.- -Put the sugar, glucose and "water in a 
clean pan and boil in the usual way until the batch 
reaches the degree of feather 245 ; (keep the sides of the 
pan free from sugar) ; pour out on damp pouring plate 
and let it remain till nearly cold ; then with long pal- 
lette knife commence to rub the sugar against the plate 
and work it about until it changes from a clear syrup 
to snow white creamy substance ; then knead it with 
the hand until of uniform softness and no lumps left in 
the mass ; it is now ready for use and may be kept 
covered in stoneware jars until required for various 
purposes. In winter the sugar need not be boiled so 
high ; in hot weather, a little higher. When packing 
the cream away in jars it is better to keep the top 
moist by laying on a damp cloth before putting in the 
cork. Seeing that cream keeps so well, of course it is 
saving to make much larger batches at a time. This 
can be easily arranged by multiplying the proportions 
according to size of pan and convenience. These pro 
portions are a guide, but the writer knows of no absolute 
must be this or that, although he has made as many 
cream goods as most people and with as much success. 
He has seen as fine a sample made in the same 
workshop when the boil was made up a little different. 

However, in submitting his own formula, it may be 
taken for granted he is not a mile from the bull s eye.

entirely over with white nonpareil (hundreds and 
thousands) ; when the drops are dry shake off the sur

Melt some cream (see "Cream for Chocolate Cream") 
use the runner and fill the moulds ; in an hour the 
cream will be set hard enough to be taken out of the 
moulds ; they are then ready for coating. Warm some 
sweet chocolate paste until melted, then drop the 
creams into the melted chocolate, two or three at a 
time ; lift them out with a long fork and place them on 
glazed paper or sheets of tin to dry ; put them in a cool 
place to harden ; pack carefully in paper lined boxes in 
such a manner that they hardly touch each other ; if 
packed roughly like most other candies, they become 
spotted and rough, spoiling the appearance altogether. 

Rubber moulds are now largely used for making 
these goods ; being much cleaner and very much easier 
used than starch moulds, and for new beginners are 
very much better than starch. These moulds are now 
to be bought much cheaper than they were a few years 
ago, the price now being about 1.40 per Ib. These 
moulds weigli about two pounds each and hold ninety 
chocolate drops and can be refilled every half hour. 
We would strongly advise the purchase of rubber

moulds, as besides the saving of time, neither starch 
boards, starch, plaster moulds or bellows are required. 
Fletcher Manfg Co., carry a full line of moulds for 
chocolates and creams. 


This mixing is so often required by confectioners 
for so many purposes that a good general recipe will 
not be out of place. If the instructions are followed and 
a little discretion used with the colors, a light glossy 
chocolate coating will be the result. 

1 Ib. Pure Chocolate. Chocolate Brown Color. 

3 oz. White Wax. Cochineal. 

PROCESS. Put the chocolate in a saucepan ; stand 
on the furnace plate or near a fire ; break up the wax 
into little pieces and stir it in until all is melted ; then 
add the brown color, with a little liquid cochineal, 
stirring the whole until thoroughly mixed ; it is then 
ready for use. For cheap common goods, more wax 
may be used. When mixing in the color try a little on 
a piece of white paper until satisfied with the blend.

gelatine till dissolved ; let it stand for a few minutes 
and remove the scum from the top, then add the acid, 
flavor and cocoanut ; gently stir the whole until well 
mixed ; tinge a bright yellow with saffron ; pour into 
oiled tins, making the sheet J inch thick ; when set, cut 
up in sticks to sell two or four for a cent. 

KB.- -This boil may be divided into two lots, one 
half colored red and flavored, raspberry, or a second 
boil may be made precisely as this one altering the 
color and flavor only. 


New Patterns. 

The best process in the world for making moulded Bon-bons or 
French Creams and grained work, is by using Patent Rubber Candy 
Moulds. They will entirely supplant the use of starch as a mould 
for manufacturing such candies for the following reasons. 

I. Not alone can all the patterns at present made in starch be 
reproduced in these moulds but also a large variety of others with a 
perfection not before known, and which it would be impossible to 
use in starch. 

II. A much superior quality of goods is produced, in as much 
as the candies show as perfect a pattern as the moulds themselves. 

III. A saving at least 33 per cent is accomplished in labor. 

IV. No starch boards or starch is required, consequently the 
filling, printing, sifting and blowing off are dispensed with six 
items of expense. 

V. The moulds specially faciliate the making of cream wal 
nuts, cream almonds and cream jellies and other combinations, 
because the nuts, etc., can be pressed on the candy as soon as it has 
been poured into the moulds. This cannot be done with starch 
moulds, as any pressure on those will destroy the pattern. 

100 Fletcher Manufacturing Co., Toronto. 

VI. Casting into starch moulds requires considerable exper 
ience and skill in order to do work well, while any workman can 
turn out the most perfect work with the rubber moulds, without 
any previous experience in such work. 

VII. A saving of room is effected, as a starch room is not 
required and the capacity of the rubber moulds is so much greater 
than starch boards of equal size that a comparatively less number 
of moulds are required to produce an equal quantity of goods. 

VIII. No starch being used, the shop will remain much cleaner. 

These moulds are made of Pure Para Rubber and will, with 
proper usage last from twelve to fifteen years, judging from those 
which have been in use for the past four years. 

An objection which naturally suggests itself to a person who 
has never tried these moulds, is that the candies might possibly 
have some taste of the rubber. This is not the case, however. 


is discernable, Not one of our many customers, either in this city 
or throughout the country, has made a single complaint. This 
proves that there is absolutely no difference between candies made 
in rubber moulds and candies made in starch moulds. 

The demand for these moulds increases every year, 

Cream to be run in these moulds should be cooked one degree 
lower than usual for starch. 

Crystal \ degree lower than usual for starch. 

Before using New Moulds for first time, soak for half an hour 
in strong common washing soda and water.

cut up into jubes and crystalize with fine powdered 
sugar. This is a cheap line ; there is not much body in 
them, but they sell at a price and give satisfaction.

sprinkle some cold water over them and roll them 
about until all are damped, then cover them with fine 
crystal sugar and mix them up till crystalized all over, 
and spread them out on trays to dry. 

The different recipes already given will give the 
reader a general idea how gelatine goods are made. By 
using different colors, flavors and shapes an infinite 
variety can be produced. It would serve no good pur 
pose to further multiply these formulas for small goods.

adding the raspberry jam ; stir till thoroughly mixed 
and run this on top of the white sheet about the same 
thickness ; when cold and hard, take out the sheets and 
make a roll of each. 

N. B. Let the red portion be cool when run over 
the white, as the white being lighter will come to the 
top if disturbed by the mixture being too hot.

6 Ibs. Glucose 2 oz. Tartaric Acid. 

2 Ibs. Apple Jelly. -i oz. Essence Raspberry. 

2J Ibs. Gelatine. Carmine Color. 

PROCESS. Soak the gelatine as usual ; boil the 
sugar, glucose and water to a stift ball ; remove the 
pan from the fire ; stir in the gelatine and let it remain 
till scum rises; skim it off, then add jelly, acid and 
flavor and sufficient color to make a bright red ; now 
mould the batch into Raspberry shapes and put them 
in a cold place. When set stiff, put the goods in thin 
layers in a crystalizing tin and cover them with cold 
syrup. Let them remain undisturbed for twelve hours, 
then drain off all the surplus syrup and turn the rasp 
berries on clean trays ; when dry, pack. 

N. B. When putting jelly goods in tins, be careful 
that the layers are not thick, as they lay so close that 
the syrup cannot get in between them. A good plan is 
to have wire trays and fix three or four loosely in each

izing tin. By this means you will get more in a tin 
with better result. Boil the syrup in the proportion of 
six pounds best white sugar to each quart water, to 
the degree of smooth 215. It must be quite cold when 
used for gelatine work or the goods will come out of 
the tins in a solid block.

water, as already directed, to a stiff ball ; remove the 
pan from the fire, drop in the gelatine, a few pieces at 
a time, stir till dissolved. Let it remain a short time 
till the scum rises ; skim it off , then stir in the tartaric 
acid, jelly and sufficient color to make the mixture a 
bright color, then mould the batch. When the goods 
are firmly set, place them in layers on Avire frames 
fitted for crystalizing pan ; arrange the frames in the 
tins and cover with cold syrup ; let them stand for 
twelve or fourteen hours undisturbed, then drain off the 
surplus syrup ; take them carefully out of the tins, 
pack them on clean trays ; when dry they are ready 
for boxing. These goods require handling gently ; 
they are very delicate and easily crushed.

13 lbs. Best White Sugar. 2 quarts Water. 

PROCESS. Have the goods cleaned and put 
crystalizing tins ; bring the above quantity of sugar and 
water just to the boil and stand aside until only milk 
warm ; then pour it gently over the goods until covered 
then slip the hands into the middle of the goods, and 
with the fingers just ease this bulk so that the syrup 
will flow freely between them; withdraw the hand:

carefully and cover the tin ; do not again disturb it for 
the next twelve hours, when the goods will be ready to 
drain and dry. To an experienced man, this method 
may seem a little dangerous and likely to spoil the 
crystal ; but it will not do so if done carefully. Of 
course, it is understood the goods are not to be roughly 
stirred up, but simply loosened.
