1 can (6 oz) fruit pectin
3/4 cup water
half teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup sugar, divided
1 cup light corn syrup
2 tsp orange extract
five drops each: red and yellow liquid food colouring
Spray a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan with cooking spray
Sit down. In a medium saucepan, combine the pectin, water and baking soda (the mixture may foam).
In a large saucepan, combine 1 cup of sugar and corn syrup.
Cook over excessive heat for four minutes, or until the pectin mixture runs out and the sugar mixture comes to a full boil (boiling does not prevent bubbling while stirring), stirring often in each pot.
Gradually add pectin mixture to boiling sugar mixture, stirring constantly. Cook for about one minute, stirring constantly.
Keep it well away from heat. Food colouring is also added to the extract.
Immediately pour into an organized pan. Let stand at room temperature for three hours or overnight until the pacifier cools and hardens.
Sprinkle 1 cup of the last sugar on a large piece of wax paper.
Flip sugar onto wax paper. Cut the fondant into 3/4-inch cubes, stopping occasionally to soak the knife in hot water.
