Love this candy recipe. Easy for new cooks too, and great Christmas treats. I learned from my mother, who learned from her mother how to make candy. They were experts. Here's what I know: Always use a wooden spoon, why? Metal spoons get hot and add extra heat that can distort the why the candy cooks. Only stir once and awhile and DO NOT scrape the upper sides of the pan. Sugar sticks to the upper sides of the pan and actually crystalizes and burns (you don't see this process taking place and that's okay as long as you don't scrape it down into your candy). So if you accidentally scrape the upper sides, you get that crystalized taste and burned too. Yes, I agree with RainyDayGirl reviewer; follow her advice about stirring. Mom used to say, once it's burned toss it, there's no way to fix it. Have fun.
