Turkish Delights

these are the jelly candies given out by the Snow Queen in C.S.
Lewis's classic tale "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe." Unable
to resist the sweet, Edmund allowed himself to fall under the spell
of the White Witch and is spirited off to her icy castle.

2 tablespoons water
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon liquid pectin
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cups light corn syrup
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cherry, mint or orange extract
Food coloring as desired
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Confectioners' sugar for dusting

In a large saucepan, combine the water and pectin, then stir in
the baking soda. The mixture will foam and become frothy. In another
large saucepan, combine the corn syrup and sugar.

Place both saucepans over high heat and bring to a boil, cooking
4 to 5 minutes and stirring both constantly.

When the pectin mixture has stopped foaming and the sugar mixture
is boiling, gradually pour the pectin mixture into the sugar mixture,
stirring constantly.

While continuing to stir, bring back to a boil and boil for 1
minute. Add the extract and food coloring.

Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice. Pour into an 8-inch
square glass baking dish and let stand for 3 to 4 hours, or until set
and firm.

Cut into 2-inch squares and remove them from the pan. Dust
