Candy-Making Made Easy

Amanda Hesser's short piece on Candy Making in Sunday's New York Times Magazine was enough to convince us all to toss the Starburst habit and make our own candies.

Don't misunderstand; we are not advocates of gelatin and corn syrup in the kitchen, but we still believe that making your own is always better - be it candy and burgers, or curry and bulgur.
