This week’s tip helps you manage your time and maintain the quality of your candies, which is especially important with the busy holiday season ahead.
Set your candy thermometer with an alarm for one or two degrees lower than your cooking time to ensure you don't overcook.
When you start a batch of caramel and walk away to work on packaging, you’ll be alerted to the candy cooking process with enough time to remove it or begin the next step before it gets even one degree too high.
Programmable candy thermometers like the one pictured on the left are available on Amazon starting at $21.99.
