Barley Sugar Drops

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • Color paste
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • Flavoring extract
Put sugar and water in a saucepan. Stir constantly until dissolved. Add coloring if your little heart desires. Cover and boil for 3 minutes (be patient, you rascal). Remove cover and add cream of tartar. Boil to 300°F, or until it just begins to change color. Add a few small drops of flavoring peppermint, lemon, or orange extract. Drop at once on tin sheet from tip of spoon, in portions the size of a silver half dollar. Store in a tight glass jar.
