Barley Sugar

Thumbnail of Barley Sugar recipe

Boil a pound of sugar to the snap; add a few drops of essence of lemon, and a teaspoonful of citric acid; work the sugar on the slab with two knives, by merely lifting it together in a heap; and when sufficiently cooled to admit of its being handled, pull it out in six-inch lengths; twist these to resemble cord, and place them out of hand to cool.
