Ingredients

  • A Cupful of Sugar
  • ½ Teaspoonful of Essence of Peppermint
  • A Pinch of Cream of Tartar

Method

Crush the sugar very fine, and boil for five minutes with water just sufficient to moisten. Then take from the fire, and add the cream of tartar, and after mixing well add the Essence of Peppermint. Beat briskly until the mixture begins to whiten well, and then drop upon white paper and dry in the open air. If it sugars again before all is dropped, add a little water and boil again for two minutes.
