Create Great Candy on Your 24 Inch Gas Range

November 4th is National Candy Day, which means that anyone who is in love with candy is urged to celebrate by having a piece of hard candy, toffee, caramel, or something equally sweet.  Thankfully, a lot of candy is on sale since it’s so soon after Halloween! But why not try whipping up some candy of your own?

There are so many varieties of candy out there that it would probably take many years to cook them all on your 24 inch gas range.  Here at Restaurant Supply, we’re not averse to giving that a shot, either – maybe make some candy in the likeness of the local politicians (since it’s voting day in the US)?

Candy has been around for a very long time.  Many cultures, before the widespread use of sugar, used honey as the sweetener for candy.  As candy evolved and sugar became more available, candy stopped being used for mostly medicinal purposes and as a balm for the rich and moved into the area of giving something sweet to children. That gave way to a large market, one which is still thriving today.

The candy industry was revolutionized when the candy press was invented, allowing confectioners to create multiple shaped candies at once. However, more interesting candies can be made when they’re done on a smaller scale. Maybe a little something for the patrons, a little piece of peppermint candy as an after dinner aperitif?  That’s where your candy-making magic comes into play.

When you cook on a 24 inch gas range, you have the ultimate control over your temperatures, something which is of vital importance when working with candies.  Your eye needs to be on the thermometer at all times as you’re heating it up, and you need to be able to reduce the heat almost immediately to create special concoctions – just what the 24 inch 4 burner gas range can do for you.

So, if you’ve decided to make some candy for National Candy day or just need a burner that provides you with ultimate control, consider getting a 24 inch gas burner from Restaurant Supply.
