This will be my first adventure into candy making. I thought it would be wise as a beginner to start with the stuff proven to work. Plus, when that Pro Candy Maker comes forth, I will pepper them with lots of other questions. <the plan>
I love caramel and butterscotch hard candies and thought it would be fun to be able to make my own using "Stevia" in them. I use Stevia in everything I make that is sweet and the aftertaste many speak of is something I don't taste at all.
I'm a diabetic, (type II), so I use stevia in everything and can make it as sweet tasting as I wish.
My goal is to make a couple pounds of hard candy and keep it in the freezer until I want another batch. On a super hot day, a frozen hard candy is a real treat.
