Sugar: Not just for eating anymore

By: Ardis E. Parshall - December 02, 2011

From the Relief Society Magazine, December 1966 —





  1. When we lived in Venezuela, ants were everywhere. Someone told us there was sugar in the mortar in the walls. I don’t know if that was true, but it certain was true if we left any sugar at all on the counter in the evening, there’d be a teeming bunch of ants working on it the next morning.

    I can’t even imagine those sugar ornaments in that environment! But in the cold intermountain west where the bugs die every winter, pretty cool! (Though as a kid I’d’ve found it impossible not to eat them all…)

  2. Can you eat them after Twelfth Night?

  3. Kind of like making the sugar Easter eggs that used to be so popular. Nothing like extending it to Christmas! What about Halloween? Could we do pumpkins and ghosts?
