Trojan horse candy

TTrojan horse candy gets its name from the theory that greedy cancer and candida cells will consume the sweet maple syrup in the mixture and be destroyed by the baking soda with which it is blended. In other words, it's an ambush for bad entities disguised in something delicious.

MmmmDoes it work? I have no idea. But I've tried it and do like the Earthy, salt-water-taffy sweetness of this blend and it couldn't be easier to make.

I do have concerns over cancer, candida, and osteoporosis in my own life, and have found that I don't have any negative effects from the concentrated sweetness in this mixture. Usually I experience gum inflammation when I eat concentrated sugars—a sort of early warning system my body has. But I'm never bothered by Trojan horse candy. I wonder if this gives credence to the anti-disease claims. Actually, this is not so much a candy as it is a spoonful of gooey-sweet-salty-foam! It satisfies my sweet-tooth while not inflamming my gums.

Holiday shop 09Here's how I make it, which I think is unique because of the microwave. You must make this in tiny batches, and I can't see heating this in anything other than a small dish, thus the use of the microwave.

Ingredients:

• One tablespoon of 100% maple syrup
• 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda (aluminum free)

Stir together in a small glass dish and microwave for about 3 seconds. The mixture will foam. If you overheat this, it will turn into burnt taffy. Scoop up the foam with a spoon and enjoy.
