Licorice drops

1 cup (1/4 liter) granulated sugar
1/4 cup (50 ml) brown sugar
1/4 cup (50 ml) water
1/4 cup (50 ml) light corn syrup
1 tbsp (15 ml) black food colouring
1/4 tsp (1 ml) anise extract or pulverized anise seeds

Put the sugars, water and corn syrup into a pot, set the pot over
medium heat and stir. When the batch has boiled for the first
time, wash the sugar crystals down from the sides of the pot. Put
the thermometer in the pot and cook without stirring to 290F (143C)
[soft crack stage]. Take the pot from the heat and add the food
colouring and the anise flavouring and stir them in gently.

With a teaspoon, drop round patties about the size of quarters onto
a greased baking sheet. If the candy in the pot gets too firm for
spooning, reheat it gently until it softens.

Cool the drops completely but not in the refrigerator or the pieces
will stick. Wrap the drops individually in wax paper or cellophane.
