Sour Lemon Drops

Make a batch of barley squares. Just as soon as you

pour it on the slab sprinkle over it three-fourths ounce dry Tartaric

Acid, two tablespoons Lemon flavor; turn the cold edges in to the

center of the batch, work it like bread dough; place this before a hot

stove on your table and cut into little pieces with your scissors, or

run the batch through a drop machine.

All goods that you want to spin out or run through a machine or cut

with scissors should be kept warm by a sheet iron stove, on a brick

foundation, fitted in the table evenly, and the candy placed in front

to keep warm.

Should the candy slab, after it is greased, act sticky, not allowing

the candy to come up freely, throw a dust of flour over the sticky

place after it has been greased.
