Stained Glass Candy
1 C. water
3 1/2 C. white sugar
1 1/2 C. light corn syrup
1 T. almond extract
1 T. red food coloring
Lightly grease one 12 x 18 inch or larger baking sheet.
In a large heavy saucepan, combine the water, sugar and corn syrup. Heat over
high, stirring constantly with a heat resistant spoon, until all sugar is
dissolved. Stop stirring and bring to a boil. Boil until a candy thermometer
reads 310 degrees F. Remove from heat.
When bubbling has ceased, stir in the flavoring and a food coloring. Spread into
the prepared pan so that the candy is no more than 1/4 inch thick. Cool for 45
minutes in the refrigerator. Remove from refrigerator, crack into pieces and
