This post is really awesome and very helpful for me thank you for sharing this article and good job mate.

Jo Morgan

You are an inspiration! Note to self: add homemade goodies to list of gifts to give next Christmas! It's hard to imagine anyone who wouldn't be delighted by these yummy gifts! Happy New Year!

P.S. I hope your back is healing well.


Beautiful Kim! Happy New Year to you and yours. 2012 is going to rock! And MicheleinMaine...excellent idea! :-)


Those things just make the prettiest picture! Lovely. Your whole house must have smelled divine.


Yum! I can smell it from here...what fun!! And the caramels sound super special. What great ideas!!!

Yum! Definitely on my to do list!

In response to Rebecca's concerns with high altitude. I now live at 5400 ft. (Metro Denver); after living most of my life in the Mid-West. It does create some challenges, but you can still make good candy. I have found some great info in The New High Altitude Cookbook by Beverly M. Anderson & Donna M. Hamilton. Sometimes, I just Google... Hope this helps.


Candy maker amidst recovery from back surgery--you amaze me! I know I'm not the only one who hopes maybe you'll add salted caramels to the shop?


Love your holiday gifts, where did you find the bags for the caramels?


You have an incredible amount of energy for someone just out of surgery. You, Carole and Terry have inspired me to try my hand at vanilla next year, but in the meantime, I have a bottle of my own to enjoy! It's amazing! Your gifts are beautiful and anyone would be very pleased to be a recipient.


Great tip on the syrup--wonder if it would work in pecan pie? I luuv sea salted caramels and bought some as a treat for Christmas in a "Made in Brooklyn" store that sells handmade goods. So good. Glad you had the time to enjoy and make these lovely treats.


That all looks so gorgeous!!!!

Very nice labels. Thanks for sharing all of your tips. Just wondering where you ordered the golden syrup from that provided quicker shipping. Thanks.


How awesome! Wish I was on your list :). Hope your feeling better after surgery.


I'm glad I inspired you to make some homemade gifts. Your labels are beautiful and I bet those caramels are fantastic!


Gasp! Sea Salted Caramels?? I absolutely loved the Salted Caramel coffee that Starbucks had and that wouldn't hold a candle to your caramels! Unfortunately, at my altitude nothing that requires reaching a certain temperature ever works...something to do with how water boils quicker but is less hot. Thanks for the eye candy!


How yummy, Kim!

We used Lyle's in some peppermint hot fudge sauce on Christmas Day and it made an incredible difference. Not easy to find in the hinterlands, though. Fortunately, it does last forever.

Love all your packaging and labels.

So, will all the yarn club members be getting caramels next month ?? :-)

Glad you're on the mend!
