Amateur Candy Makers of the World

My first attempt at candy making. Poolaki. Its a persian treat made of caramelized sugar that is nice to have with tea. I thought it would be a fun treat for celebrating Naw Ruz. It seemed simple enough. And it is. I followed this recipe from my new favorite blog Turmeric and Saffron. She recommends several different topping options. Mine only have saffron in them. The only thing I would like to add if one is planning to attempt making Poolaki, is that the sugar cooks very quickly and continues to cook even after removed from the heat. It is a good idea to start on low heat and remove it before all the sugar has melted, as it may end up with a slightly burnt taste.
