🍡My first experience making fruit candy🍡
Hello my loving Asean Hive community
Today I made some sweet treats. Today I made is some fruit candy. When Covid-19 was bad, I saw on Facebook that many food vloggers made fruit candy and ate it while staying home. They make fruit candy mainly from fruits and sugars such as strawberry, grapes, apples. I have also seen some food vloggers make and eat vegetables with sugar. The vegetables they use are vegetable like chili, garlic, ginger. Ever since I saw how they made fruit candy, I have wanted to try that fruit candy. But I did not do it at the time because I thought it was a little difficult to make that fruit candy. However, I will share with you how to do it today as it is very easy to do when I try it out today.
You do not need a lot of ingredients to make fruit candy. The main requirement is
• sugar and
I do not use garlic and ginger used by food vloggers. I used apples and oranges. I want to use grapes and strawberries, but I did not go to the market today, so I used apples and oranges.
First, I thoroughly washed the fruit with water. I originally intended to use the yellow fruit shown in the picture. But I did not use that fruit because it was too much for me alone.
First, I peeled the apple. Then I slice the apple into small pieces. I made orange the same way. Then I attached the fruit with small sticks.
Now is the time to make sugar syrup. To make a sugar syrup, you need to mix the sugar and water in the right proportions. The sugar syrup used to make fruit candy is a 2: 1 mixture of sugar and water. I use a cup full of sugar with the cup mentioned above to make sugar syrup. As for water, I use only half that cup. Some even add a little honey for the aroma.
I heated the water and sugar I had measured in a pan. When heating sugar and water, you do not need to heat it at high temperatures. You also need to stir the sugar syrup with a spoon.
Once the sugar syrup has boiled as shown in the picture, I can start to make fruit candy. I applied the sugar syrup to the fruit as shown in the picture. Then I chilled the fruit on a plate. Applying sugar syrup to fruits should be done quickly. This is because sugar syrups solidify quickly.
When the sugar syrup hardens, you get fruit candy. Biting that fruit candy is a bit like biting an ice cube. My brother came to eat this fruit candy with me, so the fruit candy quickly ran out.
