I started with it because it's easy and doesn't take forever! For those interested, here is the recipe I use...
Ingredients you will need:
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 Tablespoon vinegar
1 Tablespoon baking soda
1 9x9 pan, lightly greased - NOT glass!!!
1 candy thermometer
Combine the sugar, corn syrup and vinegar in a saucepan.
Cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves, stirring regularly.
|Love the color|
|bubble, bubble, toil and trouble|
|The color darkens a little|
Pour into the 9x9 pan and allow to cool; DO NOT SPREAD. The "batter" grows once the b.s. is added so you have to move fairly quickly.
Once it is cooled, remove it from the pan and break it into pieces.
The name comes from the texture. It's a hard candy that melts in your mouth and has a very distinctive taste due to the vinegar.
Sponge candy stores well as long as it is kept dry, otherwise it gets sticky.
If you try it, please comment and let me know what you think. Enjoy your holidays.
