Candy Canes
(makes 2 dozen)

2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
2/3 cup water
red and green food coloring
1/4 tsp mint flavoring

Combine first 3 ingredients, and cook over low heat, stirring
constantly until boiling. Cook without stirring to 265 F (hard
ball). Remove from heat. Wipe off pouring side of pan with damp
cloth, and pour hot syrup into buttered pan to form a thin sheet.
Let cool. When cool enough to handle, divide in two parts. Add
red coloring to one part and green to the other. Add mint to each.
Pull like taffy until very firm and it loses most of its gloss.
Stretch into ropes about 1/2 inch in diameter. Twine pink and
green ropes together. Cut in 3-inch pieces and twist until stretched
to 5 inches. Curve one end. Let stand overnight.
