How is Victorian Nectar Drop candy made?

…and why are lemon drops, cough drops, and fruit drops all called drops?

In this video by Tallahassee, Florida’s Lofty Pursuits artisanal candy makers, we get an up close look at how their restored candy equipment, circa 1848, made (and makes) Victorian era nectar candy drops. Watch the hot sugar roll through the pairs of brass drop rollers into sheets of molded candies…

And the ‘drop’ name? Wait until you see how the candies are separated.

Next: Liquid sugar painting of a Chinese candy dragon, Amezaiku Japanese Candy Sculptures, and from Lofty Pursuits: How are candy canes made?
