    • Alcohol Infused Cough Drops
      By LizD518
      I saw a recipe on facebook today for making your own cough drops.  It was a basic hard candy recipe of sugar (and water) with a little honey, lemon, ground ginger & clove - cooked to hard crack, made into droplets on a silpat or parchment and left to cool/harden, then tossed in powdered sugar.  I'd like to doctor it up a bit and could use a little help.  Would it be possible to add a little whiskey into the mix?  Also, if I wanted to steep fresh ginger / clove / etc, what would be the best way to do so?  I was thinking using the water - even though it will all boil off I could steep the flavorings in that before adding it to the sugar.  Finally, what would be the best way to store them so they don't start to soften?  
    • UHT cream, Invert sugar and ganache shelf life
      By martin0642
      Hi all - i've been trying to find out how using UHT cream and Invert sugar can help with shelf life of ganache (for dipped or molded chocolates). I understand the principles by which invert sugar helps and obviously, having a sterilised cream can make a difference.
      What i'm struggling with is being able to work out roughly how much the use of these ingredients would extend shelf life. Another week? Two? I understand the recipe makes a difference but for arguments sake, lets say a 2:1 Milk chocolate to cream ration with 30% (by weight of cream)  glucose syrup added and....20% (by weight of cream) invert sugar added.
      ANy pointers?
    • Storing Molded Chocolates
      By RuthWells
      I know the gold standard for storing molded chocolate bon bons is to vacuum-pack lightly, then freeze.  Any suggestions for an overly-enthusiastic home chocolatier with an abundance of inventory and no vacuum sealer?  My local coffe shop is selling my wares, but not as quickly as I've been producing them!
    • Lumette, handcrafted confections by Ewald Notter
      By pastrygirl
      Does anyone here know what the story is with Lumette?  I was just at a chocolate event and a local caterer was featuring these chocolates.  I doubt that Ewald Notter is working for a caterer in Seattle, so is this a wholesale line he's doing?  The website seems to be just a landing page for now.  Just curious, it was odd to see the name at a local event.
