And then, it really was time for me to make something sweet again. And because I still wanted to try out the mould my mother gave me, I decided to make sugar confectionary. No, gosh, this sounds awful. Let's just call it sweets hahaha. It so easy. Still a bit dazed by my Fudge Adventure, I decided not to make a lot, and just try it at first. Wasn't necessary, it's lovely!
Because it's such a fast recipe, I didn't have time to make pictures. Otherwise all the sugar would have got brown and bitter.
- 100 gr christal sugar
- 6 tablespoons milk
- 100 gr icing sugar
- a drop almond/vanilla essence
- Let the sugar melt in the milk until it's bubbling.
- Get it of the stove and mix the icing sugar in it.
- Now is also the time to add the almond/vanilla essence.
- Pour the mix in the moulds and let it curdle.
- Eat it! (:
Make sure you do this al very fast, before it's curdled. Then it's way too much work to get it out of the saucepan. Yeah, this is experience speaaking (:
For now, this is it. Yesterday I had a great time with Doris. We spent our time in Haarlem, looking for vintageshops and other small unknown shops. After a few failed attemps, some shops didn't even exist any more hahaha, we found a nice vintageshop. And I bought really a cute brooch, which I'm gonna show another time. Then we lost ourselves in a Chinese bead-shop. Back at my place, we made pancakes. I loved it all!
Enjoy your last hours of the weekend! x Janna
