Hazel's Candies Copper Kettle Trade Secrets [Hardcover]

Virginia Sager Holen


Available from these sellers.



Book Description

June 2000
This cookbook contains more than 70 recipes that are far more than simply old family favorites. For nearly 3/4 of a century, these formulas and trade secrets were closely guarded but are now being made available to the public for the first time. This book was written by Virginia Sager Holen with the help of her husband, Merv. For years they had owned and operated the Hazel's Candy Shops that were in the major malls in Washington and Oregon. Even though the book is written by professionals it is for the amateur using original recipes that were reduced in size for home cooking. All the recipes have been tested, with step-by-step procedures recorded, using the same concept as 'painting by numbers'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Oct. 27 2004
By Autodidact - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I never heard of Hazel's Candies, and I bought this book along with several others as I launched into home candymaking. This book contains kitchen-tested recipes -- very important -- that are easy enough and well-explained enough for the novice. Forget microwave fudge. This is the real deal. I just made a batch of the best fudge in the universe from this cookbook. It's enough to make me think of switching careers, or gaining 500 pounds, or both.

Some recipes call for items not usually found in a home cook's kitchen -- such as hard butter. I found everything I needed on-line at [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Love This Book March 15 2005
By Marisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I received this book as a gift and I absolutely love, love, love it! I regret that I was not fortunate enough to actually purchase any of their candies when their stores where open. I'm a truffle lover and the truffles in this book, while few are absolutely excellent and extremely easy to make. We made caramel apples recently and used the caramel recipe in the book and I won't say how many of the apples I ate but I enjoyed each and every one of them. Buy this book; you will love all the recipes in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great candy recipes Nov. 23 2001
By ken - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I am an amateur cook and love to make candy. I remember buying candy at Hazel's Candies when they had stores in the malls in Washington and Oregon. I was really excited to see that they had written a candy cookbook using their original recipes that they scaled down for home use. My favorites are the Victorian creams and the fudge recipes. This book tells you exactly what ingredients you will need and a step by step recipe. If you do have a problem it walks you through a list of questions and what you might have done that caused the problem. I would recommend this candy cookbook as a gift to ones self and also a gift for others for any occasion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Candy Recipe Book Oct. 25 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Best candy recipe book that I have used. The recipes are easy to understand and follow and the results are candy treats that are hard to resist. This book contains some history about the author and her family which includes a history of the Hazel's Candy Stores in Western Washington and Oregon. Their time at the Seattle Worlds Fair and how they got the stores in the major malls. There are also some old family recipes such as 3 day rolls and lemon pie. People will not be disappointed in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Candy Lovers Cookbook Dec 7 2001
By "astralangel" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
As a resident of Washington state, I was familiar with Hazel's high quality candies and was delighted to see that a recipe book of their delicous confections was available. I recall the amazing rich flavors of their candies. This book is filled with detailed yet easy to follow recipes for just about any of Hazel's candys you wish to make. I also enjoyed reading the family story; it's like a page out of American history. This book is a real treasure and an essential addition to your cookbook library.
