    Wow Paddy I've not heard of gundy for years, thats a blast from the past !! The last time I bought it was out of a butcher shop I know - last place you'd expect to buy a sweetie, I cant mind if it was George Mackay's or Harrold's but definitely on High St in Wick.
    Someone from the WRI may be a good bet for a recipe though
    Avoid biting when a simple growl will do

    There are a few old fashioned sweetie websites...try the google with Gundy sweets or just old fashioned sweets. You might be amazed by what you find.

    Default From the John 'O' Groats cookery book

    Haven't tried it yet, so don't know if it's the real deal.

    4 tbsps sugar
    4 tbsps syrup
    1 tbsp water

    Put above ingredients in a pan and heat slowly until dissolved. Boil
    rapidly until hard ball stage. Pour on to well buttered tray.

    Turn in edges with a buttered knife until cool enough to handle. Butter
    hands well, pull and fold the toffee until almost white. Twist and cut.

    I used to make gundy when i was small wth our neighbour Marie miller, she used to use a marble slab to work the gundy on, but i never learnt the recipe, but i can remember stretching and pulling at the gundy. and heaven forbid if your fillings were loose
