    was wondering if anyone has ever tried to make their own doozer sticks...
    my husband and I were discussing this last night and are considering trying to make something similar up,, which got me to wondering if anyone else has ever given it a try...
    so.. anyone??

    or are we just weirder then advertised???

    Actually, that doesn't sound like a bad idea, but how would you be able to make Doozer sticks with radishes? Maybe you could take the same idea that is shown in "The Great Radish Famine." I wouldn't have the slightest clue on how you would do that, though. If anyone succeeds at making their own Doozer sticks, let me know if they're any good.

    I have always wondered what Doozer Sticks taste like! I have never even thought of a recipe, but if anyone comes up with something delicious, please post the recipe!

    That is a really great idea, Davina. :excited:

    Well an easy one that would get sticky is a light caramel. You melt some sugar in some boiling water and wait until its syrupy. Of course you would have to make some kind of mold of something.

    Or if you could somehow make sugar crystals, like rock candy, in a stick shape...

    I don't think they form straight sticks though.

    That's the problem, but they would be clear colored.

    Hot glue gun rods look like Doozer sticks, but you can't eat dat!

    Doozer sticks are clear, glue sticks aren't really clear. And I think Doozer sticks are hexagon shaped.

    I think there are flavorings that are colorless, but I don't know if you can get them commercially.

    I guess turning radishes into Doozer Sticks is like turning potatoes into french fries. It gives a natural vegetable a new shape and a zesty new flavor.

    I think what you would have to do is make it how you would make seaside rock and have the radishes mixed with sugar . In theroy there is no reason why it should'nt work . Any confectioner would be able to tell you unfortunatley i do not know any ;)

    Now I really want to do it! I mean, look at it this way! Who ever made them could send the idea to Henson and maybe they could produce them and put them on store shelvs! Will lots of flavors!

    that be a cool idea how about a candy like that that you could build with with candy conectiors so it could really be like doozer sticks build with them then eat them. or be a like a fraggle build with them then break a peice off

    It is possible. Make it like hard candy. I dehydrated radishes for this very reason a long time ago but never put them into the candy. I'm about to try again only without radish dust, maybe just add some kind of clear juice to the boiling sugar. Then you let them form in either a mold or a large cookie sheet and break them into perfect pieces...i am trying to figure out what to use for "glue" because I fully intend to build a tower out of my candy sticks. Right before I eat it.

    I have also made candied radishes, and I'm about to attempt peach and garlic pie. :) I have no idea how that will turn out, but I will honestly tell you that candied radishes are surprisingly good.

    I'm not sure I'm a good enough cook to pull off a souffle, but artichoke souffle really sounds good, too. Maybe someday I'll risk it.

    I wish I had the skills to pull off Doozer sticks, I've heard candy making is hard. Peach and garlic pie had crossed my mind, perhaps using black garlic because it's sweeter?

    If you have a blog with your recipes, feel free to share! I'm sure I'm not the only one who would be interested. :)

    Wow, most of that sounds amazing! Candied radishes? Putting other vegetable juices in candy? The fraggles would approve! You could probably also chop up those raddishes and mold them in the shape of bars for Red's raddish bars.
    It never occurred to me to make raddish dust with a dehydrator!:excited: Maybe stick them together with butter and sugar like rice crispy treats, or ooh! You said you were looking for glue. How about almond butter? That's gotta be one of the stickiest foods I've ever had!
    I don't know if I would like peach and garlic pie, but you never know!
