With that, we’ve reached the end of the first week. It’s the most theoretical week of the course in which we’ve laid down the foundations for further weeks.
We’ve looked at carbohydrates, and what they are. Next, we zoomed in on a range of different sugars that you might use in your candy making process. A lot of these sugars are used in making candy and you’ll see several of them later on in the course.
Understanding what sugars are and how they’re different will help you understand candy making.
In the next week, we’ll focus more on just one type of sugar: regular sugar. We’re going to look at how we can play with temperature and water to create different types of textures and consistencies with sugar.
