Although we tend to make candy mostly during the holidays it is
a welcome treat anytime. I have fond memories of my Mother making
divinity and fudge during the holidays.

Before we start the recipes a few words about candy thermometers
and temperatures.   Some people are skillful enough to make candy without
a thermometer, but I don't recommend that.

Here are the temperatures for the common candy terms, all in Fahrenheit:

Thread:  230
Soft Ball:  234
Firm Ball:  244
Hard Ball:  250
Soft Crack: 270
Hard Crack: 300
Caramelized Sugar: 310-338 
Get to 350 and you have a burned up mess.
