Let's explore how to make cotton candy or fairy floss around the world. In Korea it is called dragons beard candy and it is made by pulling candy by hand into fine strands like hair. In Persia it has a nutty flavour from sesame seeds and is called pashmak. In Australia the USA and the UK it is made by spinning flavoured sugar using a cotton candy machine. Today I will show you how to make all three, they are heaps of fun to make at home.

    I’ve been trying to make this for the past 2 weeks and every time I try it either breaks while pulling and falls apart, I burn myself while trying to make it or a piece would break off and cut me…. I ruined a good saucepan and I broke my candy thermometer and I had to buy a new one…. YOU MAKE THIS LOOK SO EASY!!!!!

    Tip: You can simply use high-wattage light bulb for the heat lamp, but you might need to wear sunglasses for that! 😁 If you have an old shop light that uses incandescent bulbs, you can use that too.

    The Pashmak is actually called, in popular turkish "Pi-sh-ma-ni-ye", that's a long word so I guess that's how you say that in english. I used to eat it SO MUCH as a child (I'm originally from turkey, now living in israel) everytime someone brought it back with it. The process was really fun to watch because as an 8 years old I always described it as "cotton candy that someone sprinkled tahini (the paste with the sesame seed) on it."

    Would tahini mixed with a little oil work as well as the sesame and oil mixture, and be even smoother? Tahini is found in Middle Eastern groceries, and some well stocked American groceries, here in the USA. It is also used for making hummus (which I've made) and other M.E. dishes.

    My favourite would probably be peshmek. I live in Turkey and here peshmek is called Pişmaniye (pishmaniye). I love how you made it so similar to the original. Usually, the original is made of tahini (sesame seed paste). Yours was very very close to the real tahini, but the original is made of sesame seeds, they give their own oil so you don't have to add extra vegetable oil. Also, instead of corn flour they usually use corn starch, it doesn't get absorbed by the strands, so you get a cleaner taste.

    Dragon’s beard is actually a kind of traditional Chinese street food. Basically, the dragon we are talking about here is Chinese dragon, and there’s no doubt that it’s a symbol of China. We Chinese people are really happy to share our cousins with people around the world, but please do respect our culture. Dragon does not symbolize Korea.
