  • Using equipment that is that are almost 150 years old, our candy master makes cinnamon candy hearts on a Thomas Mills fruit drop machine. The table he is working on was made in 1881. This candy and others made in the same style can be found for sale at www.PD.net. This candy is made in front of our customers in Tallahassee, Florida at Lofty Pursuits. We call our candies "Public displays of confection"

    I have two questions:
    Won't the plastic spoon melt when you stir it?
    Does the candy burn your hands after you first separate the metal bars from it?

    • Nova Winchester

      it's a wooden spoon, not plastic.
      the parts against the bars get fairly cool, the liquid center is burn you alive hot. The look the same. it takes a while to know where you can touch. Not everyone can take the heat.

    Why is it that you fold the candy by hand and the others use the hook? Or do you start out folding by hand for show then use the hook?

    • Emily Dewey
      Emily Dewey 2 years ago +1

      +Lofty Pursuits The way you make candy is incredible. Especially the part where you cut it into little pieces really fast.

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  3 years ago +5

      +Gracie Ferguson It's a personal choice. It really depends on what we are doing, and who is doing it. The longer your arms, the easier it is to do table pulling. The table he is pulling it on is also heated, so doing this this way can give you more work time for certain designs. It is the choice of the candy maker. Personally, I find table pulling is harder on my back than the hook, so I use the hook for the large colors that need to be stretched, but I stretch smaller amounts of sugar (highlight colors for instance) on the table as I need the extra heat.

    I got a question. I've noticed other videos use Granite tabletops as their heat sink. is there any benefits/weaknesses to having it as granite

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  3 years ago +1

      +mike ebenkamp Granite for hard candy does not have enough thermal mass. Granite and Marble are used a lot for chocolate that you heat up no hotter than about 120F/48C (if I chocolateer wants to correct me here, I won't be offended)

      We work up to 320F (160C) Without the circulating water that the metal tables have, the stone tables would not remove enough heat to do more than one batch at a time, and I know candy makers that do that, and then ice down the stone between batches.

      I'm not sure what most marble slabs weigh but my table is a mid sized one and it weights 2000lbs (900kg), but that weight is just the metal, the water that circulates ... well it weighs even more.The table has about 30 gallons of water in it at any time, and 30 gallons weighs about 250lbs (115kg), and then the water circulates, so it's the total mass of water that goes through during an hour... well I've never thought to calculate it.

      This is an interesting question.

      But the direct answer is I don't think that stone as as much mass, nor is it able to self cool.

      Lofty Pursuits  3 years ago +2

      You work with hot sugar, you get used to it or you find another job. Mind you the average temperature is that hot, but the edges and surface cools fast, so until we fold it a bit, the edges are cool enough to work with. That being said, I still get a good burn from not doing it right every once and a while. Also rubber gloves as thin as they are make a huge difference.
