What makes the Honeycomb, comb?
One of my favorite parts of the honeycomb candy making process is seeing how the different flavorings affect the structure of the inside of the candy - the "comb."
The reaction between the core ingredients is what creates the honeycomb pockets inside this candy. It takes only seconds for the heated liquid to expand and rise once poured in the pan.
The anticipation of waiting for it to cool to see what beautiful and unique comb is made with each batch is like waiting for a teapot to boil! I am always surprised at the subtle differences in each batch. The Orange Blossom Water has a more compact and dense comb structure than the Original flavor, which is a light structure with large comb pockets.
The rich smell of the honey when breaking the candy apart for the first time is fragrant beyond what any written portrayal can describe.
