I got this recipe from the Tombstone Epitaph. Foods teh Western Way newspaper. They print old recipes from the American Frontier days.
Sorry about being 3 days late. I had a cold. :(

1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons water
5 drops peppermint (or other flavor)
A few drops of beet juice (or similar, for color)

Stir sugar and water over a low fire until the sugar is melted. Continue stirring for five minutes, no less, and add mint. Drop by 1/2 teaspoon onto waxed paper and allow to cool.
