Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 (1 3/4 ounce) package powdered fruit pectin
  • 12 teaspoon baking soda
  • 34 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 18 teaspoon orange oil
  • 5 drops red food coloring
  • 5 drops yellow food coloring
  • additional sugar

Directions

  1. Butter a 9-in. square pan with 2 teaspoons butter; set aside. In a large saucepan, combine the pectin, baking soda and water (mixture will be foamy). In another saucepan, combine sugar and corn syrup. Bring both mixtures to a boil. Cook until foam on pectin mixture thins slightly and sugar mixture comes to a full rolling boil, about 4 minutes. Gradually add pectin mixture to boiling sugar mixture, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  2. Remove from the heat. Stir in orange oil and food coloring. Immediately pour into prepared pan. Let stand at room temperature for 3 hours or until set.
  3. Sprinkle waxed paper with sugar; invert pan onto sugar. With a knife dipped in warm water, cut candy into 1-in. squares; roll in additional sugar. Place on a wire rack. Let stand, uncovered, at room temperature overnight. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 81 pieces.
