      Title: Orange gumdrops
 Categories: Candies
      Yield: 72 Servings
 
      1 c  Sugar
      1 c  Light corn syrup
    3/4 c  Water
      1 pk (1 3/4-ounce) powdered fruit
           -pectin
    1/2 ts Baking soda
  1 1/2 ts Orange extract
      1 ts Finely shredded orange peel
      4    Drops yellow food coloring
      1    Drop red food coloring
           Sugar
 
  Line a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan with foil, extending foil over edges of
  the pan.
  
  Butter the foil; set pan aside.
  
  Butter the sides of a heavy 1 1/2-quart saucepan.  In the saucepan
  combine the 1 cup sugar and the corn syrup. Cook over medium-high
  heat to boiling, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon to dissolve
  sugar. This should take about 10 minutes.  Avoid splashing mixture on
  sides of pan. Carefully clip candy thermometer to side of pan.
  
  Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, till the
  thermometer registers 280 deg.F., soft-crack stage. Mixture should
  boil at a moderate, steady rate over the entire surface. Reaching
  soft-crack stage should take about 10 minutes.
  
  Meanwhile, in a heavy 2-quart saucepan combine water, pectin, and
  baking soda. (Mixture will be foamy.) Cook over high heat to boiling,
  stirring constantly. This should take about 2 minutes. Remove
  saucepan from heat; set saucepan aside.
  
  When sugar mixture has reached soft-crack stage, remove the saucepan
  from heat; remove candy thermometer from saucepan. Return pectin
  mixture to high heat; cook till mixture just begins to simmer.
  
  _Gradually_ pour the hot sugar mixture in a thin stream (slightly
  less than 1/8-inch diameter) into the boiling pectin mixture,
  stirring constantly. This should take 1 to 2 minutes. Cook, stirring
  constantly, 1 minute more.
  
  Remove saucepan from heat.  Stir in orange extract, orange peel, and
  yellow and red food colorings.  Pour candy mixture into prepared pan.
  Let stand about 2 hours or till firm.
  
  When firm, use foil to lift candy out of pan.  Use a buttered knive
  to cut candy into about 3/4-inch squares. Roll squares in additional
  sugar. Store loosely covered.  Makes about 72 pieces.
  
  Cinnamon Gumdrops:  Prepare Orange Gumdrops as directed above, except
  substitute 3 drops oil of cinnamon and 7 drops red food coloring for
  the orange extract, orange peel, and yellow and red food colorings.
  
  Mint Gumdrops:  Prepare Orange Gumdrops as directed above, except
  substitute 3/4 teaspoon mint extract and 7 drops green food coloring
  for the orange extract, orange peel, and yellow and red food
  colorings.
  
  Lemon Gumdrops:  Prepare Orange Gumdrops as directed above, except
  substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon extract, 1 teaspoon finely shredded
