CHAMPAGNE TRUFFLES

24 servings

CENTER MIXTURE
8 ounces cream
1 pound bittersweet chocolate
1 ounce butter
1 ounce cognac
ENROBING
1 pound bittersweet chocolate
1 pound cocoa


It is important to use an excellent quality chocolate when making truffles since it is the primary ingredient. Valhrona is my first choice and Callebaut is my second.

BRING THE CREAM TO A BOIL and pour it over the cut chocolate. Allow to stand 1-to-2 minutes and stir smooth. Beat in the softened butter and cool to set. Beat with an electric mixer (using a paddle attachment if available) on medium speed until light. Beat in Cognac. Pipe out small truffles on parchment or waxed paper with a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain tube. Refrigerate to set. Melt the chocolate. Sift the cocoa into a deep pan. Dip the truffles in the melted chocolate and then deposit them in the cocoa, shaking the pan to cover them. After the covering sets, shake the truffles in a strainer to remove the excess cocoa.

CHOCOLATE TOFFEE

64 servings

1 cup sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups half and half
1 1/2 ounces melted unsweetened chocolate
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 pinch salt


COMBINE THE SUGAR, CORN SYRUP, and 1/2 cup of cream in a large saucepan set over moderate heat. Stir the mixture until the sugar dissolves completely. Insert a candy thermometer, reduce the heat to low, and cook the syrup, stirring frequently, until the thermometer registers 238F. Blend in another 1/2 cup of the cream, which will cause the temperature to drop, and continue to cook and stir until the thermometer reaches 236F or until a bit of the hot toffee dropped into a little cold water forms a soft, pliable ball. Mix in the remaining 1/2 cup cream and the melted chocolate. Cook the toffee, stirring constantly, lest it scorch. Cook toffee until the mixture becomes quite thick: A drop of it should firm up quickly in cold water. (NOTE: Even though the temperature of the toffee may not exceed 230F, if it firms in cold water, remove the pan from the heat at once.) Quickly mix in the vanilla and salt, then pour the toffee into a well-buttered 8-by-8-by-2-inch pan. Cool the toffee completely, then cut it into 1-inch squares. Wrap each one in waxed paper or plastic wrap.

GRANDMOTHER'S MOLASSES TAFFY

1 servings

1 cup molasses
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch salt


Tire a la Melasse de Grand-Mere Quebec's sweet tooth is often satisfied by this old-fashioned candy made from molasses and sugar. This recipe belongs to Marguerite Legault, a member of Les Fermieres de Thuroso, a rural woman's group in the town on the Ottawa River.

In a medium, heavy saucepan, combine molasses, granulated and brown sugars and water. Heat to boiling and stir to dissolve sugars. Let mixture boil, without stirring, until syrup reaches the hard ball stage (260F/125C) on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat, stir in butter, baking soda, and salt. Immediately pour onto a buttered marble slab or baking sheet. When cool enough to handle, butter hands and gather taffy into a ball. Pull taffy between hands and continually stretch and fold again until taffy turned lighter in colour (this can take from 5 to 15 minutes.) Stretch and twist taffy into a rope about 1 inch thick and cut into pieces using buttered scissors. Wrap each piece in waxed paper. MAKES: ABOUT 48 PIECES

HINTS FOR USING A CANDY THERMOMETER

1 servings

CANDY CLASS, SUGARCRAFT


...Learn all the secrets of really GREAT candy making! *The first thing that should be done each day, before you start, is to TEST YOUR THERMOMETER! To do: immerse therm. in cold water. Bring to a boil. At sea level water boils at 212 degrees If your water boils at 210 degrees, you should reduce the cooking time by 2 degrees. Most of the time, water boils here about 208 d. Try not to cook candies on a rainy day. The barometric pressure, when the air is heavy, holds the mercury in your thermometer down. "Make candy when the sun shines," motto of a good candy maker. *I recommend a TAYLOR or WILTON thermometer. Use a thin (good quality) pan for candies that MUST STAY IN THE PAN for any length of time for cooling. If you leave the thermometer in the pan, you may notice the temp. rising even after the candy is removed fro the stove. Using a heavy pan, your candy will burn, in this case. Use a HEAVY PAN for fudges, fondants, etc., that are to be dumped immediately.

HOME-CANDIED ANGELICA

1 servings

1 pound angelica
1 pound granulated sugar


The most important thing about candying angelica is to choose stalks that are young and tender. In other words, angelica is only worth candying in April or May when the shoots are new and softly coloured. Trim the young shoots into 3-4 inch lengths, put them into a pan, cover with water and bring to a boil. Drain and scrape away tough skin and fibrous threads with a potato peeler, rather as you might prepare celery. Return the angelica to the pan, pour on fresh boiling water and cook until green and tender. If the shoots are as youthful as they should be, this will take 5 minutes or less. Drain the stalks and dry them. Put them into a bowl and sprinkle granulated sugar between layers, allowing 1 pound of sugar for every 1 pound of angelica. Cover and leave for 2 to 3 days. Slide contents of the bowl into a heavy-based pan. Bring very slowly to the boil and simmer until the angelica feels perfectly tender and looks clear. Drain, then roll or toss the shoots on greaseproof paper thickly strewn with sugar, letting the angelica take up as much sugar as will stick to it. Then dry off the angelica - without letting it become hard - in the oven, using the lowest possible temperature. I place the stalks directly on the oven shelves (with trays underneath to catch any falling sugar) and find they need about 3 hours. Wrap and store after cooling completely. Packed into pretty little boxes, home-candied angelica makes a charming present.

ROCK CANDY

1 servings

food color
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
sugar, Additional


You will also need a glass jar or drinking glass, 1 piece of cotton string, 1 pencil or stick and 1 paper clip.

Tie a short piece of cotton string to the middle of the pencil or stick. Attach a paper clip to the end of the string for a weight. Moisten the string very lightly, and roll in a bit of sugar (this will "attract" the sugar crystals from the syrup to the string). Place the pencil or stick over the top of the glass or jar with the string hanging down inside.

Heat the water to boiling, and dissolve the 2 cups of sugar into it. For the biggest crystals FAST, heat the sugar-water solution a SECOND time, and dissolve as much additional sugar as you can into it. Add a few drops of food coloring to the solution if desired.

Pour the solution into the prepared glass or jar and leave undisturbed for a couple of days. Depending on how much sugar you were able to dissolve into the water, you should start to see crystals growing in a few hours to a few days.
