Calibrate Your Candy Thermometer

  • Fill the pan you’re going to use 2/3 full with water
  • Bring the water to a full boil
  • After 10 minutes, check to see if the temperature of your thermometer reads 212° F

If your candy thermometer is off, subtract or add the difference to your final cooking temperature.

For example: If your candy thermometer reads 210° F in boiling water, you’ll want to cook the candy to 246° F, not 248° F.
