After dinner today we made some candy for my bees. I'm hoping to put it on them tomorrow along with some pollen patties.
A prepared mold. We use tinfoil to line the inside of the pan.
Heat the water until it starts boiling before pouring in the sugar.
One cup of water to every five cups of sugar. Or one pint of water for five pounds of sugar.
After adding the sugar stir continuously until it starts really bubbling/boiling. Heat to 234 degrees before pouring into molds.
After pouring into molds wait until the candy has cooled. If done properly it will harden and be ready to put into your bee hive.
