    Molly53's Note:

    An old-fashioned candy from the Mississippi Valley chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947. From David S in Nashville: Candies are usually stirred constantly until they come to a boil. The sugar needs to be completely dissolved before it comes to a boil. After the candy comes to a boil you need to let it boil without stirring. It's also important that the candy cool down undisturbed to the proper temperature before beating it.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place all ingredients in a saucepan and boil, rather slowly, to 236F on a candy thermometer or until mixture reaches soft-ball stage.
    2. 2
      Remove from heat to stop boiling; brush down sugar crystals with a dampened pastry brush (this is the important first step to prevent candy from being hard, grainy or sugary).
    3. 3
      Pour the hot candy at once onto a platter which has been lightly dampened with cold water (to help prevent sticking) and allow it to cool to lukewarm (about 110F) without disturbing.
    4. 4
      It will take about an hour at room temperature for fondant to cool sufficiently.
    5. 5
      Beat hard until fondant loses it's transparency and becomes white and opaque.
    6. 6
      Stop beating and knead with the hands until there are no lumps.
    7. 7
      When fondant is smooth, place in a tightly covered jar and it will keep for a long time.
    8. 8
      Fondant becomes more creamy as it stands, if covered tightly. If not covered, it dries out.
    9. 9
      Let stand at least 24 hours before using, for best flavor.
