Making hard candy with natural flavorings?

nothingswrong | Apr 25, 201501:16 AM

Does anyone have experience making homemade hard candies? I've got a friend who deserves something special in the mail. But she has the same health condition as I do, and can only tolerate clear liquids right now. She sucks on hard candies throughout the day to keep her mouth happy.

I was thinking of making her some in interesting flavors, but I'm hoping there is a more natural way to flavor them than buying extracts.

Any advice on how to flavor them, and any interesting flavor combos or ideas (fruit? fruit + ginger?) would be greatly appreciated. As would recipes. I'm familiar with the basics of candy making, have proper equipment, and all the time in the world.

Thanks!
