In Response to Re: Cold weather is coming - great for baking:
I wonder if anyone can tell me about making candy - fudge, divinity, things like that - early???. I never make candy early and that turns the last couple of days into a frenzy.

Nancy, I make my candies up to one month ahead of time. I store them in tins in a spare bedroom that has the heat vents closed so it's pretty chilly in there. In fact, I have already made 2 batches of fudge, almond bark, and your peanut brittle. I'm getting ready to ship out a box to my son's former Navy squadron. They deployed 4 months early and will be spending Christmas in the North Arabian Sea again. My son is now stateside for 2 years, but his squadron buddies asked him when he left if I would send them some of my homemade goodies. How can anyone refuse that request???
