    How long does it take for the candy to turn white?

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  2 years ago

      +Sarah Scheidt depending on the day and on how big a batch were doing they can take from 2 to 8 minutes. On some of our videos show the full process in actual speed. Keep in mind these are very small batches so there a bit fast.

    you guys should hit that candy pulling hook thing wit a hammer so all the candy would come off i seen other people do it in another video when they make candy

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  2 years ago +1

      Adding the hard candy can promote crystallization of the whole batch. We are using a hook from the 1800's now, and it's so much better. The candy almost never sticks.

    how do u clean the hook? and does it make a difference in how the candy pulls if there is already some build up on the hook like in this vid or a bare hook?

    • Lofty Pursuits
      Lofty Pursuits  3 years ago +2

      It depends on the flavor. If you have peppermint on the hook and your making a mild flavor like peach, it might. But normally the next layer of candy sticks to the hook too, and it acts like a barrier to the flavor on the hook.
      As for cleaning. Candy is water soluble. The hook detaches from the wall and is put in a bath of water. No effort.

    • jessica sierra
      jessica sierra 3 years ago

      Yeah they are. They look finely powered, but i can see how the citric acid could make the clear parts of the candy look kinda 'dirty' in a way.

    • lightdark00
      lightdark00 3 years ago

      It confused me that he said powdered, but then later white specs. So I think it's like normal citric acid crystals you can get--just like refined sugar.
