Glazed Nuts

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2014
Perfect. Easy. Quick. Ok I'm new to candy making but in my view I think the "soft ball" stage (besides the thermometer and the drop in water test) appeared to be when the sugar syrup darkened and thickened to the point of maple syrup consistency. I mean real maple syrup. Hope this is helpful!

It was wonderful. I followed the suggestion about using cooked rice during the final stages.

Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
Deliciously lemony. Simple list of ingredients. Great for biscuits, vanilla ice cream or turned over raspberries. Note: the curd set "better" when I blended the sugar and eggs together, away from heat, prior to adding to a warm pot. I melted the butter in the pot before I added the sugar/egg mixture. I then lowered the heat a bit, and stirred periodically to prevent any egg white bits from forming. This seemed to take about 5 mintues longer but I've made it four times yesterday, and the best 'sets' were the ones where I did it this way. I poured the curd into clean jars. I could tell the curd was perfectly 'set' in the jar when the color was a light yellow, like the picture.
