My Candy Secrets

Excerpt from My Candy Secrets: A Book of Simple and Accurate Information Which, if Faithfully Followed, Will Enable the Novice to Make Candies That Need Not Fear Comparison With the Professional Product IT is often asked of me: "When did you first begin making candy?" And I am obliged to say I honestly cannot remember, for as children we were allowed all the candy we wished, provided we made it ourselves - and thus made sure of its purity. Mother says that the instinct was inherited - for she was given by her father, when she was only twelve years old, her very own kettle and candy hook that she might indulge her sweet tooth without commotion in the kitchen. Mother still has her diary of that time and a frequent entry is: "Came home from school and made candy." As much as I had inherited and learned as a child of candy making, it was not enough to save me many trials and sad mistakes when at sixteen I really began to make candies to sell. There was no book to teach me the things I needed to know. I had to learn almost entirely from experience - bitter experience. For a mistake meant loss of materials and time - a loss indeed in those days. Naturally, I learned much through years of trying this and that way, and I know that what I have learned of the "hows" of candy making will be a great help to those who would like to make candies at home. Therefore, I have written this book; and in doing so I have endeavored, not only in my text but by means of many photographs, to show clearly and concisely the methods of making the various kinds of candies, as I believe this will be far more helpful than a mere collection of recipes. Once the knowledge of methods is understood, one can make at home as many varieties of candies as one's imagination may inspire.
