Making Candy for Winter

It seems timely to start on candy making for the bees since it is December and when I went out this morning the ground was frozen. I found a no-cook recipe on the internet that seems pretty easy. I decided against a true fondant because I am not a skilled candy maker.

Here’s what you will need:

  •  A 5-pound bag of sugar
  •  A measuring cup – 1 cup filled with water
  •  A large mixing bowl
  • A mixing spoon or spatula
  • A medium size aluminum pan
  • Optional –  Essential Oils ( I added a few drops of lemongrass, Thyne, and Peppermint oils )

Directions:

  1. Add entire bag into to large mixing bowl
  2. Measure and then pour 1 cup of water into bowl
  3. Stir and combine water and sugar (1-2 minutes)
  4. Optional: Add 10-15 drops (5 drops each into the mix) as you stir

I attempted to record some video of this process for your enjoyment. I am just adding this element to the blog and in the future, I refine these into more finished products.

 

If you have questions, contact me. I will post another blog piece on placing of these bars into the hive.
