Add cold sugar syrup to beaten egg whites. The prepared caramel-albumen paste is to be
combined with prepared sesame seeds. It is best to do this in a confectionary pot
(whatever THAT is). It has a spherical bottom. Spread the paste onto a greased
confectinary sheet or stainless-steel board, rolled out into a layer of about 5 cm and cut

Title: Helen's Apricot Delight
Keywords: candy, apricots
From: Helen Fleischer
1/4 cup (scant) apricot paste* (or try apricot leather)
1 cup boiling water
2 cups granulated sugar
1 box Sure Jell
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 Tbs (scant) powdered sugar for coating
*Apricot paste is a thicker, softer version of apricot leather, available at middle eastern
groceries. Tear or cut the paste into small pieces and place in bowl or cup. Pour the
boiling water over it and set it aside to dissolve. If it hasn't completely dissolved by the
time the water has cooled, help it along with a hand blender or use a regular ble nder.
Spray a non-stick brownie pan with Pam and set aside, preferably on a marble slab or
other good heat sink. I use d a 7 1/2 by 11 pan and got 3/8 inch thick candy. A smaller
pan would give thicker candy. Measure the sugar into a large saucepan. Add the apricot
mixture and the pectin powder. Stir over high heat till th e mixture reaches the soft ball
stage. Remove from heat. Stir in walnuts. Pour mixture into prepared pan. If walnuts ar
en't evenly distributed, adjust this quickly with the spoon. Let the candy cool while you
and your spouse lick the spoo n and scrape the pan. Once you've scraped and licked as
much as you want, set the pan and spoon to soak in hot, soapy w ater. Pour powdered
sugar over top of cooled candy. Tap to evenly coat the top, then tip the loose sugar into a
small, shallo w bowl. Dip the end of a sharp spatula in the sugar and use it to cut the
candy into 1" squares, with a straight, chop ping motion. Dip the spatula back into the
sugar any time it threatens to stick. Using clean fingers pull out the cand ies one by one
and flop them about in the sugar to coat all sides. Place coated candies in a cookie tin for
your sister , lined with wax paper. Separate layers with additional paper. Make a second
batch for your husband and yourself (at l east that's how I did it).
Makes 32 pieces.

Title: White Candy Roses
Keywords: Candy, Decorations
3/4 c Vanilla Flavor Melting Wafers
2 tbl Light Corn Syrup
In the top of a double boiler, melt wafers over hot, NOT BOILING, water. Add the corn
syrup and stir until smooth.
Spread the mixture 1/4-inch thick on a clean cookie sheet and cover with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate until firm -- about 1 hour.
Cut off small portions of the candy and shape into 1/2-inch balls. Working with one
piece at a time, flatten each ball on a clean baking sheet, wooden borad, or marble
surface. (Keep the remaining balls in the refrigerator until ready to roll.) With the
surface of a clean light bulb or clean soup ladle, rub the candy into 1 1/2-inch round.
Carefully lift off the candy with a sharp knife or metal spatula, held flat against the work
surface. Roll the first round into a cone shape, to form the base and center of the
"flower". Flatten about 7 more balls to make a large rose. Lift the rounds from the
baking sheet and shape around the center of the rose, overlapping each petal. Overlap
rows of petals to resemble a real rose. Press petals agains the center and squeeze at the
bottom of the flower. Cut off a small portion at the ottom of the flower so that the
flower will lie flat. For a realistic delicate look, gently tear the edges of the petals, and
fold back. To make buds, use three to four balls of candy. If the candy becomes too soft,
return to the refrigerator or freezer to firm up. Makes about 6 large roses and six
Title: Candied Citrus Peel

Makdes about 2 cups
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 1-1/2 hours
Dry time: 24 hours
5 large oranges (3 grapefruit, 7 lemons or 9 limes)
2-1/2 cups granulated sugar
Cut your fruit into quarters, peeling each quarter. Reserve fruit for another recipe. Cut
peel into 1/3 inch wide strips, making about 2 cups of prepared rind. In heavy saucepan,
place strips and cover with boiling water. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Drain. Cover
with boiling water, simmer again and drain. Repeat this for a total of 5-6 times. This
removes the bitter taste from the rind. After the rinse and drain process, combine 2 cups
sugar and 1 cup water. Cook over medium heat, stirring until sugar has completely
dissolved. Bring to boil and add the cooked peel. Simmer over medium heat for about
45 minutes until tender. With slotted spoon, remove peel from sugar syrup and
arrange on a rack so that pieces aren't touching one another. Let cool. Sprinkle with
remaining 1 cup sugar and let dry at room temperature for about 24 hours. Store in cool
dry place in airtight container with wax paper between each layer of candy.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Butter the bottom and sides of an 8-inch spring form
pan. Line the bottom with parchment or waxed paper; butter the paper. Using a heavy
duty aluminum foil, wrap the foil under and up the outsied of the springform pan to
prevent leaks and set aside.

into the cooled chocolate. Fold the chocolate mixture back into teh remaining egg
mixture. Pour into the prepared pan.
Place the pan in a deep roasting pan. Fill with enought hot water to come 2/3rds of the
