Natural hard candy flavors
I recently made my first batch of lollipops using orange oil from Lorann Oils. I was somewhat hoping that the difference between machine-made lollipops and homemade lollipops would be the same as the difference between machine-made brownies and homemade brownies. Unfortunately it wasn't quite so severe.
I noticed that most of the flavors tend to be artificial. Does anyone have any experience in using natural flavors? Can I buy a box of blueberries and somehow turn them to concentrated flavor myself? Any pointers would be appreciated.
