Candy Factory Tour

Last Monday for Family Home Evening, Granpa got off from work early and took us all to the Liberty Orchards candy factory where they make Aplets and Cotlets (they are a Washington jelly candy that has nuts in). The factory was in a small town called Cashmere, about 2 hours away. It was great fun to check it out. We asked someone to take a picture of us just before we went of the tour and they cut Cyndi out of the picture. I am little unhappy because now we don't have a group picture.

The big double boilers mixing all the ingredients together to make the candy

Pouring the candy in molds. Once it is poured, it is pushed the side and cools to room temperature. Once at room temperature, it is placed into the fridge to set.

Cyndi excited about all the candy. Look at that smile on her face!

Thanks Granpa for a fun filled Family Home Evening!
