You pull the pan off the heat (I have to re-read my recipe to be sure) a couple degrees below 133 and let cool a bit before casting.

I never read the little house on the prairie series. I didn’t even know there was a cookbook. Any good?

Been wanting to have a go for ages, ever since I read about hand pulled candy in the little house on the prairie cookbook. Although ideally I think you are supposed to do it in the snow.

Once you get the texture right you should be pulling in no time. If the candy is too stiff, even 15 seconds pause can cause it to rupture (I think as long as you keep pulling the friction keeps it OK but I cant be sure). Lemon juice might react differently than vinegar, because the acid is non-volatile and the pH is different. If I had to guess, I’d say your candy came out too soft, in which case it will pull itself apart under its own weight as the strands get thinner.

How many times have you fail before you successfully pulled the Dragon bearded candy.
