Centuries Ago It Was a Part of the)
Art of tho Apothecary.
Curiously enough, the making of con
fectionery originated in a way with the
apothecaries about 500 years ago. It
was then that sugar was first imported
into England, and it was then that
"confectidiis" first became known. For
a time they appeared only in medical
form, the apothecaries using the newly
Imported sugar as a means of mitigat
ing the bitterness, of their doses. In
other words, they mixed their drugs
with It, and therein lay the origin of
many of the sirups and medicated cau
dles, the ancestors of our cough drops
and lozenges. The cost of sugar was
far too high, and most people were far
too. noor to permit of 'its being eaten
for its own sake alone and as a mere
It was only a couple of censures ago
that there began to appear a new
phase of the apothecary's art. Con
fections began to be made more or less
apart from any medicinal purpose and
because people liked them, and eventu
ally the confectioner's business became
quite separate and distinct frorn that
of the apothecary.
Although the confectioner's trade
may be nld to be about 200 years old,
it was only within recent times that It
became a real and j?3tenslve Industry.
At first Bupar was heavily taxed, and
the confectioner's trade was pursued
upon -very elementary principles. For'1
a long timo erery thing wag done by
hand. Implements were of the very
simplest candy kettles heated on small
brick furnaces, pestles and mortars,
rolling pins and scissors, etc. The out
put was very small, and, comparative
ly speaking, sweetmeats of all sorts
were expensive and frequently unat
All this has been changed, and now
adays the most improved machinery
and implements combine to produce
the most delicate and attractive sweets.
Muscles have been superseded by en
gines, pestles and mortars and rolling
pins, and ecissors have given place to
revolving pans and steam pans, and
mechanism for beating and kneading
and mixing, for cutting nnd slicing and
grinding, for rolling and grating and
stamping, for crushing ice and freezing
cream nnd other processes.
While many of the best and most
expensive randies are stiil very largely
made by hand processes., by far the
e-rcntor mnss of sweetmeats Is oroduo
ed by machinery. Harper's Weekly.
