Before you start cooking you need to prepare candy molds, so as not to miss the moment of solidification. Good metal, but you can use small silicone molds for baking. You need to lightly lubricate each office with vegetable oil without smell. Set the molds aside.
Take the container for cooking. Better if it is cookware with a thick enough bottom. In any case, do not use enameled pots.
Stir in the sugar, a pinch of salt, pour in water, stir well and put on quiet fire.
On slow fire bring the mixture to a boil. Need to stir the syrup with a wooden spoon and prevent it from hitting the edges and the bottom of the pan.
Watch closely for change the color of the syrup. In finished form it must be from a Golden yellow to a light brown color.
Pour in the mixture of syrup from the jam (without fruit). Adding different kinds of jams, you can change the taste of the finished candy and color. The most attractive and delicious are the cherry and raspberry syrups. Candy would be bright and appetizing.
Slightly lift the spatula, as soon as the mixture starts to reach (after about 5-7 minutes after the start of cooking) drip the syrup on a plate. If the drop spreads, cooking need to continue, reduce the heat.
As soon as the drop will remain on the plate unchanged, turn off the fire. Let the mixture stand a minute or two. Now you can pour.
For the distribution of the molds it is better to use a ladle with a spout to pour the hot mixture. Carefully fill the ladle and pour into molds.
After two minutes, insert it into the center of each candy wooden skewers or toothpicks. You can use a plastic if the syrup is not very hot.
Allow the candy to harden. Remove from the forms, pack each in a plastic transparent film, tie with a ribbon. Ready.
