Butterick: The Correct Art of Candy Making at Home

Spiral Bound Book Republication™

Originally Published in 1892!

Up for bid another marvelous Dakota Prairie Treasures Spiral Bound Book Republication™ of the Victorian Era ''The Correct Art of Candy Making at Home'' from 1892!

Now this genteel society seemed focused on doing everyday tasks with grace and social decorum! This included the daily kitchen routine and included presenting family, friends and company with delicious delicacies produced every month of the year with whatever fresh fruits, nuts, cream, butter, etc., that were readily available. If the ingredients weren't in season, or on hand because you canned it yourself the prior year, you were not going to make or share these succulent treats! (Original is not for sale)


These wonderful recipes made me think how easy, good and graciously gifted to others such treats would be for a dinner party, family gathering or a lazy Sunday afternoon gathering! Taffy pull anyone

You will be set with candy recipes for every possible holiday or occasion! Birthdays to weddings, graduations, Bar or Bat Mitzvahs, Valentine's Day, Halloween, Christmas, even the Forth of July!

Our customers say:

 ''Great little book... loaded with recipes! Thank you!''  ''Candies I have never heard of. WOW. Thanks for your excellent service. A+++''  ''What a great item! Would buy from again. Recommend. Thank you!!''

An excerpt:

''The making of delicious candies according to the methods of practical confectioners will not only afford an agreeable pastime, but will prove of lasting benefit, especially to the younger members of the family; for candy thus prepared at home will contain nougnt but materials of known purity and excellence and will, if made according to the recipes here given, be quite as tempting to the sight and agreeable to taste as that produced by the most experienced candy-cooks.''

''The amateur will be pleased to discover, after a little practice, how many varieties of handsome and palatable confections she can make with her own hands, and she will be pleasurably surprised to find how many new ideas on the subject will suggest themselves to her as she proceeds further and further with the work. .''

''No more skill is needed, however, to make a pan of dainty caramels than to mix and properly bake a delicate cake, and no more judgment is required than is used by the housewife in deciding the exact moment for removing a pan of jelly from the fire. In fact, any woman who is anxious to succeed and who will follow carefully and intelligently the instructions here given may be sure of making pure and wholesome candies of superior quality.''
