End of the Year Gifts; Part I




I like to show my appreciation for those around me by making something homemade.  In all honesty, how many boxes of See's candy can one receive.

It all started when I had my furniture business, Little Folk Art, and I wanted to show my gratitude to my clients with a little something special at holiday time.  When one is working with such an affluent clientele  that could buy whatever they want, the only thing I could think of giving them was something made from the heart.

I have carried on this tradition and have now passed it down to those who take care of my children, 10 months out of the year.

This year was an especially busy one.  With Eli graduating and me being very involved in the culmination process, I choose to do things that could be done in advance and wouldn't take 3 days to do it. I committed to dedicating one day to this process, and I achieved my goal.

For months, I had been wanting to make Nancy Silverton's Honeycomb.  This was the perfect opportunity.  I could make large quantities and not only share this with the teachers and staff, but my friends as well, who happen to have just as big of a sweet tooth as I do.

If you have a tempering machine, I highly recommend this recipe.  It is just as good, if not better than the honeycomb I grew up on at Little John's Candy Shop in The Original Farmers Market.



All packed up and ready to deliver.  The honeycomb got rave reviews!

Everywhere that I've seen this candy - It's called "Seafoam"! I live on the west coast. It looks delicious!

I clicked through on two recipes today on Tastespotting (without looking at who they were) and YOU were one of them.

This looks delicious. I'm off now- we need to play!
