Gatta

Ingredients

2 cups Guyana brown sugar
2 cups water
Vanilla or Pear Essence for flavor
Food coloring (optional)
2 drops lime juice

Preparation

You will need an oiled countertop or large cutting wooden cutting board, and a huge nail nailed somewhere in the preparation area for stretching.

  • In a carahee, put in sugar, water, lime juice, and essence. Do not stir. Bring to a boil with medium-to-high heat until mixture is bubbling up thickly. Test a small amount with a toothpick in cold water. If it holds on to the toothpick, it's ready.
  • On oiled countertop, quickly pour bubbling mixture. Cool slightly. Oil hand, (do not allow to harden). Grab goo, throw on nail and stretch. Repeat until goo is no longer brown, but milky. If no coloring is used, it will be white; if red is used it will be pink, etc.
  • Stretch out on counter. Cut into desired length with a blunt knife. Cool. Store in airtight container. Will keep for days.
