I was just looking at the site for making hard candy that was posted. good info except fo r one thing. it said take the candy until 310F which is perfect, thats the stage known as hard crack stage, or simply hard candy stage. but the article says to go another 10- 15 minutes on high heat!!!! no way, in fact once you hit 310 there is no reason to go any further. unless you just want a darker color, but it will soon start to over caramlize and acidify, and thats just not good eatin!

other than that what dina posted should work great, you could just make a strong green tea with the water in the recipe and sub it.

wow anyone can edit those wiki pages, I just fixed the recipe. I actually recomend pulling hard candy off at around 305 degrees, it will carry over the rest of the way to 310 if your using a heavy bottomed pot.

I think someone was fooling with us and messed up the page. 10-15 minutes would have ruined your work.. darn trolls!!! <--- shakes fist in air

you can also buy some citric acid at your drug store and add it in at the end. This is a natural ingredient used to make candy sour... although I'm not sure if you want that in green tea candy.

You can also buy molds for candy (not chocolate molds) they are made out of flexible material like silpats you can use those if you want a nice shape.
