Hard Candy

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Can anyone tell me what ingrediant can be added to hard sugar candy lollipops to act as a preservative. It seems that mine don't last more than a few months.

Thanks

I don't think the humidity level in L.A. CA is too high. I make hard candy lollipops with edibel images as party favors, however after about a month or so, they tend to get gooey and/or sticky. I would like to know how to deal with that issue.

Well, the info I have says your average humidity for July is between 67-80%:

And your candy is saying it has a problem. icon_sad.gif

But you're not alone, Brach & Broch's also has a problem with humidity:

Los Angeles, CA (downtown) had 73% humidity today according to the weather channel. WoW that is really high. It doesn't get that bad here till August.

Thank you both. I guess I don't feel the humidity being a native CA and all. lol icon_biggrin.gif I will have to pay more attention to the weather, and use the tips from the other sites.
