While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Goody, goody! February 15 is National Gumdrop Day.
If your Valentine’s Day wasn’t sweet enough, today might be able to make up for that. Gumdrops are small, chewy, sugar-coated candies typically made with gelatin (that's where they get their wiggle from). They’re often used to decorate gingerbread houses and even have a mountain, albeit fictitious, named after them.
While most gumdrops are fruit-flavored, some are spiced; cardamom and cinnamon are popular flavors of this version. If you’re making gumdrops at home, you can experiment with whatever flavor you're hankering, like lemon, coconut or orange.
Ick, never cared much for those.
