Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Japanese
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 1000 Grams Sugar
  • 100 grams corn syrup
  • 2 Cups water
  • 5 dops food dye
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1 Container Corn starch
THINGS YOU’LL NEED:
Instructions
  1. Mix together water and food dye.
  2. In a pan on medium heat combine sugar, corn syrup, water, and vinegar together. Don't stir.
  3. Bring mixture to 271°F. Once it reaches the temperature take off the heat, carefully. Let set until the sugar looks clear with not too many bubbles.
  4. Pour syrup into plastic or silicone molds. Cool for 2-3 hours.
  5. Cover work surface with corn starch. This will make the candy not stick to you.
  6. If the sugar has hardened too much microwave for 10 second increments until moldable.
  7. Make a hole through the center of the candy. If you used the donut mold skip this step.
  8. Hand pull the candy, making sure it is consistently the same thickness throughout. Once the circle is getting big, make a figure eight, fold it over, and continue to stretch. Repeat until you have the amount of strands that you'd like.
