Notes

Sometimes it helps to cook just a hair beyond the soft ball stage to get the candy to harden. The beating is the big secret. The color will change as the candy gets stiff. If it is too stiff to drop from the spoon, add a spoonful of hot water as needed, being sure to beat after every addition of water.
