2 cups Guyana brown sugar 2 cups water Few drops of Vanilla or Pear Essence
In a carahee, put in sugar, water, 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.
Pour bubbling mixture on oiled countertop or large cutting wooden cutting board. Cool slightly. Oil hand, (do not allow to harden). Quickly stretch out desired thickness or about 2 inch in diameter. With a blunt knife, firmly press down knife at 2 1/2 inch interval, cutting off the ends. Note: for a striped look, stretch, fold, stretch a few time before cutting.
When hardened and cooled down further, break off and store in air container. Serve luke warm or cold. Will keep for weeks!
