Wheat Flour Based Licorice #3


These are works in Process. Please help us Develop these Recipes

Recipe three:
My great grandmother made excellent, very soft--old fashioned licorice candy-- her recipe- though I don't recall the exact amounts used - was most similar to the first recipe (from Kamille Coffaro) though she used:

  • A combination of Molasses and Sorghum -butter instead of oil
  • She made a separate, thick flour paste --using graham flour
  • The molasses-sorghum mixture was boiled to soft ball stage
  • Add salt ( it seemed as if she used more than a dash)
  • Add butter and a very strong licorice tea
  • Kneaded with the flour paste as it cooled,
  • Allowed to " set up" for a day
  • Shaped it
  • Put back into the fridge for another day to "ripen"

Or molasses and sugar can be melted with water and butter to make a syrup, then boiled to soft ball stage. Next add flour then leave it to set. Again go through a melt and finally melt one more time. To shape, you can try using a pasta maker to roll it out work quickly. this produces a liquorice toffee texture.
