Candying requires a sugar syrup to be heated to a specific temperature that allows crystals to form in a specific pattern which gives provides the candy with specific characteristics- fudge, caramel, and hard candies like peanut brittle are all “candy” but each have different crystal structures.

As will be abundantly obvious, this was recorded during the Phoenician “summer” while temperatures were stifling and air conditioning was not optional. Consider this episode an ultimate lure to take the grill out and recapture the final taste of summer before fall and winter take a firm grip… even if you need to wear your mittens.

Raise a Glass

Originally posted April 1st, 2007 by Tim Adamec

Today was going to be the launch date of the first Food Geeking podcast. Early this afternoon, our good friend Joe Murphy lost his fight against cancer. Kris and I have decided to postpone the launch of the podcast out of respect for Joe, his family and his many, many friends.

Joe was a familiar voice to listeners of The Kick Ass Mystic Ninjas, The Dragon Page: Cover to Cover, Slice of Sci-Fi, and Michael and Evo’s Wingin’ It. His voice, intelligence, warmth and wit has touched many lives throughout the years both in the studio and via the podcasts in which he participated. Joe will be sorely missed.

Kris and I ask that Joe be remembered not through mourning, but through a toast. While Joe is not here to hoist a tankard with us, his legacy endures in all of us. Please join us in raising a glass in tribute to a rare individual and fine friend: Joe Murphy.
