Jessie and Molly Make Candy

When Jessie, Molly and Santa go to visit relatives down south they like to go to the spring farmer’s markets.  They explore the carts filled with the early crops of the season. 

This year Molly found a stall that sold honey.  Honey is one of her favourite sweet treats  and she purchased several jars to take home.

Once she got home she mixed a recipe from her grandmother for Honey Candy, 

Jessie, always helpful, rolled the jar of honey across the table to Molly and sat close to the stove so she could be the official taste tester once Molly was finished cooking.

Here is Molly’s recipe to share with your family.  Make sure mom and dad help you with this recipe.  Honey when heated  can burn really easily.

1/4 cup butter

1/2 tsp vanilla

nuts

food colouring (red or green)

DIRECTIONS

Chill until firm.  Cut into pieces and serve cold
