    Hi gang:

    Was hoping to get some unique recipes from other members for the Holiday season. These do not have to be limited to just food, as I am interested in beverages as well.

    Does anyone have a Holiday favorite that they make or love to have at this time of year? Would appreciate you sharing the recipe.

    1 parts vodka
    1 part gin
    I part white rum
    1 part white tequila
    1/2 part triple sec
    1/2 part sour mix
    1 splash Coca- Cola
    Lemon wedges for garnish.

    "Old Fashioned Rock Candy Recipe"

    2 cups white sugar
    1 cup water
    3/4 cup light corn syrup
    1 fluid dram flavoring of your choice. ( you can buy these flavorings all over the place this time of year, even Walmart.)
    1 drop food coloring
    Powered Sugar for dusting candy when cool.

    1. In a heavy 2 quart saucepan, combine the sugar, water and corn syrup. Cook, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved; then cook without stirring, lowering the heat and cooking more slowly during the last few minutes, to the hard crack stage (300 degrees F), If sugar crystals form on sides of pan, wipe them off with a damp brush.
    2. Remove from heat, add oil flavoring and enough food coloring to color; stir only to mix. Pour into 2 well buttered 9 inch pans. Set one pan of candy over a sauce pan containing hot water (unless you have a helper to help cut the candy). As soon as the other pan of candy is cool enough to handle, cut it with scissors into 1-inch strips. Then snip the strips into pieces. Work fast. Drop the pieces onto a buttered baking sheet. If the candy cools too quickly, set it on a saucepan over hot water to soften it, but if it gets sticky, return at once to the work counter.
    3. Toss in a small amount of powdered sugar to keep from sticking together. Repeat with the second pan of candy

    I make this every year. Would like to believe mine is some of the best around as I have been making it so long.
    At this moment I am giving it away to the mail man, gas man, meter woman, UPS man, Sisters, Brother, Aunts, Uncles, etc etc. I have tons. A candy this good goes quickly, but I think I over did it this year. LOL

    If it wasn't so expensive to ship...I'd be mailing it out to people too.

    Anyways, enjoy. If you want to try to tackle this recipe, and I can be of any help, give me a message.

    Make Your Own Candy Canes

    Candy Canes
    Makes about 12

    Who doesn’t love candy canes? These say Christmas more than any other candy, and no Christmas stocking or gift is complete without one. Once you’ve become skilled at making candy canes, you could try adding in a third color twist—now that would really impress Santa!

    Sunflower oil, for greasing
    1 cup superfine sugar
    2 tablespoons liquid glucose
    ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
    1 teaspoon peppermint extract
    Red food-coloring paste

    Equipment: Sugar thermometer

    Store: Candy canes are best served no more than 1–2 days after making. They should be individually wrapped in cellophane and stored in a cool, dry place.

    Preheat the oven to 250°F.

    Prepare your equipment and measure all of the ingredients before you begin, because once the sugar is boiling you will need to work quickly. Cover 2 baking sheets with nonstick parchment paper and grease the paper well with sunflower oil. Grease an offset spatula and some kitchen scissors with oil, too.

    Combine the sugar, liquid glucose, cream of tartar, and 1⁄3 cup water in a small to medium-sized, heavy-bottomed saucepan and bring slowly to a boil, stirring frequently to completely dissolve the sugar. Pop the sugar thermometer into the pan. Continue to boil over medium heat for about 5 minutes until the syrup reaches 300°F. Do not be tempted to walk away from the pan or do anything else while the sugar is coming up to temperature—it can easily and quickly go over and above the required heat. As soon as the syrup comes to temperature, working quickly, remove the pan from the heat, add the peppermint extract, and mix to combine.

    Divide the syrup evenly between the prepared baking sheets, add a tiny drop of red food coloring to one sheet, and leave both to cool for about 1 minute or until a light skin has formed on the top. Working on one sheet at a time and starting with the plain syrup, use the greased offset spatula to lift the edges of the syrup up and over and back on itself until it cools, thickens, and becomes tacky. Once it is cool enough to handle, quickly gather the candy in your hands and pull it into a thick rope, twisting it back on itself and pulling it back into a rope again. Repeat this pulling and twisting until the rope starts to lighten in color and becomes white, firm, and cool. Pull the white candy into an inch-thick rope and place on the greased paper. Repeat with the red candy mixture. You want both the red and white candy ropes to be the same thickness and temperature. You can pop the white candy into the warm oven for 30 seconds to warm it again if you need to.

    Lay the red candy rope on top of the white and roll them gently on the work surface so that they stick together. Start to twist one end so that the colors merge into a spiral—you may need to gently pull the ends to lengthen and thin the candy as you do this. Using the greased scissors, snip the candy into 6-inch lengths and bend one end of each piece into the distinctive candy cane shape. Place on a clean sheet of nonstick parchment paper and leave until cold and hard.

    If at any point the candy becomes too hard and brittle, place it on a parchment paper–covered baking sheet and warm in the oven for 10–20 seconds until pliable again.

    I didn't want to say it but since you did, kk, I'll agree that the recipes do look like a lot of work. ;)

    Out of all of them, the Fireball shots would be what I would tackle first. I already have the main ingredient here. A bottle of Fireball. :thumb: Come do a shot or two with me. lol

    Recipes are hard work? Where is your sense of adventure? You know....wearing a apron, trashing the kitchen, making a lot of dirty dishes, flour on your face and brow from when you dumped the open bag over.

    Adventure ladies, that's the ticket. Your thinking about it all wrong. LOL

    By the way, As today is Christmas Eve, it is just too damn late to make anything now. Head to the Piggly Wiggly or your local Grocer and pick up a pie. (already cooked to save work)

    Merry Christmas Everyone.

    I can't cook or bake like most of the people in the world who can. I believe it's my disorder of having to wash every utensil pretty much right away, wipe the stove as things are cooking on it still and basically keep the kitchen looking spotless while cooking anything. There is no way I could "wearing a apron, trashing the kitchen, making a lot of dirty dishes, flour on your face and brow" which really, really sucks because I've always wanted to come through the kitchen door holding a fabulous pie with flour on my face! lol
