Handcrafted Hard Candy

(YouTube link)

La Confiserie CandyLabs in Montreal is known for handcrafted hard candy with shapes inside. Watching how they do it is mesmerizing. After they cook and flavor the candy, it gets manipulated -a lot. All that manipulation to make the designs goes on in a hurry to keep the candy at the right temperature, consistency, and shape. I was impressed with how clean the process is, despite how much handling the candy goes through. The entire process takes about three hours. If you’re in Montreal, you can see them do this live! -via mental_floss

I was inspired by a similar kind of video to order some nice candy canes from a place in Tallahassee a couple of months ago. Maybe I'll try this place, too. The process was pretty much identical except instead of cutting the drawn tubes into many pieces with a knife they folded them into canes. The tubes were fatter, too.

Lin Geng and May He are the couple who run the business, and the only full-time employees. They are from Australia. Geng always wanted to open a business, and after he was inspired by a YouTube video about making candy, the two of them studied under a master candy maker in Brisbane. They came to Canada because it seemed like a good place to make candy.

Fascinating - but for me what's nicest is watching to craftsmen working easily together.
Our son and I work together - and though we occasionally rub each other up the wrong way, there are times when it flows nicely - just like the video.
