I have also been making honey candy for about 50 years, but no, it doesn't take
4 hours. It takes that long if you are going to make one batch after another,
after another, after another. You would really have to do it that way because
the recipe really can't be doubled. My only complaint about making this candy
is that I always ended up having to do most of the pulling and usually that
meant I burned my hands.
THIS is one you need a VIDEO for. Thank you for the recipe, it is so
deceptively simple but cannot be that simple because it takes what, 4 hours?!
I need to see HOW they pull it and what it should look like when it's cut. And
after it's cut, then how is it packaged, does it have to be individually
wrapped? Or is it a hard candy you can just put in a tin?
