Room Temp Butter, just to coat the Baking Sheet
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Light Corn Syrup
3/4 cup cold Water
Pinch of Salt

1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 tsp. Baking Soda
A hammer!

Directions:
Brush a 9×13″ Baking Sheet with butter and set aside.
Combine the Sugar, Corn Syrup, Water and Salt in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Cook, swirling occasionally, until mixture reaches the softball stage on a candy thermometer (238 degrees). Stir in the crispy and crumbled Bacon, continue to cook, stirring often so the Bacon doiean’t burn, until the mixture is amber in color!

Welcome to the Strawberryrose homestead...
Welcome to the Strawberryrose homestead…

After months of headaches and heartaches and blood, sweat and crying like a little —— well you know… I got the keys and the deed to my long awaited Dream… The Strawberryrose homestead… Now the real work/fun begins. I have been living in it for one week now and slowly moving my stuff from the other house in. I have been blessed with great friends and new neighbors that have my back and have stepped up to help me in this transition with all kinds of gifts and lending hands… I’ve gotten food plants and gates, a screen door, wheel barrel and tons of Compost…. I don’t have a riding lawn mower yet so I have been cutting the acre with the push mower lol… its ok because I’m getting back in shape quick…. To day I hung the clothes line on the Tee posts and tomorrow I’m building my first raised bed. big enough for all the goodies I received…. Things will go a bit slow because I’m alone, however I press on… Face to the wind! onward forward… I will post more photos soon…
