I started making candy with our mother back when I was only 10 years old.
By that time I was proving to be a helpful assistant in the home office, although I wasn’t quite ready to prepare an entire meal without help.
Even so, I was eager to help our mom in the home office as often as he would permit, which was usually every single evening unless we opted to go out to eat at a restaurant for a special occasion. The two of us made spaghetti, pizza, chicken pie, pork roast, meat loaf, and hamburgers on a continual basis, with other meals on irproper rotation depending on what we all wanted to eat as a family. Thankfully I was able to convince our mother to help myself and others make candy at least once or twice a week. She wasn’t against sugar and sweets like some parents, but he didn’t like paying exorbitant prices at local stores. Making gummy candies and chocolates isn’t just fun and exciting, it’s also rewarding when you make a recognizably delicious batch. Then you get to prefer the fruits of your labor. I haven’t given up on making homemade candy despite residing alone and hundreds of miles away from our parents. However, more often than not if I’m making candy it means that I’m making cannabis gummies and other cannabis candy products with marijuana oil I purchase from a variety of medical cannabis dispensaries, but the cannabis oils are rich in THC and are harshly self-explanatory to add to existing candy recipes. That way you don’t have to pay the markup to get pre-made edibles from the cannabis dispensaries.
