I've been waiting a bit to talk to you about this recipe for Satiny Honey Taffy, made with just two ingredients.
Waiting till October.
October.One of the months in the year that always starts with joy for me. With the celebration of one of my sisters birthday, with joy about being into the bouldering season and the joy that brings my girls.
The morning crispness as I walk my dogs in the midnight blue light, crunching leaves underfoot.
The little bit of bite in the air, just enough to crave a sweater but not enough to turn on the heat, yet.
The desire to get warm and cozy in the kitchen comes into play, and my desire to get a jump on the sweet gifts I want to make for the upcoming holidays.
There is only one little hiccup in the way.
October is also October Unprocessed
The harvest month, living just a bit closer to the processes of our foods. A month to remember how to make the foods we eat, without crazy chemicals and without refined sugar.
I do make some allowances. If I have ever made the product from scratch, and can find a replacement for it without additives and preservatives, I can still use it.
I'm looking at you, Rigatoni.
I'm not getting into making all the candies for gifting that I adore quite yet, but the potluck season is upon us. I want to bring something sweet.
