One of the favorite things I did with my MOM
growing up is make candy. (Book Sale and giveaway)
My favorites? Her caramel and white fudge. YUM- no, double YUM.
Both of these things require a lot of consistent stirring (caramel especially) and strength (white fudge) and with crippling arthritis settling in, she doesn't often make them anymore.
I decided someone needed to pass on the tradition and it would HAVE to be me. I know, making candy is such a chore....but....:) What I discovered is that she made it look easy, and even though I helped a lot, I didn't have any idea what the tricks were to making these two luscious treats successfully.
After many failures, many coaching sessions, and finally getting a proper candy pot, I can say that consistently perfect caramel and white fudge come from my little kitchen now.
My mom's legacy lives on and YES!
I blame her for my love of all things sweet...
She's definitely the one to blame...let's not even talk about the chocolate addiction.
Now my mom and I share another addiction--reading. The best part is that this is something that even arthritis can't take away. Hooray!
