Sugar Crystals

Here are the sugar crystals.  I kind of lost my patience for keeping them on the counter.  We took them out and this is what we have.  Aren’t they pretty?

We made rock candy this weekend.  We boiled 1/3 cup water with 2/3 cup sugar.  When the sugar dissolves slowly add another 1/3 cup sugar.  You may not need it all so do it slowly.  Once the sugar starts to pile up and isn’t dissolving anymore STOP.  Add some food coloring if you like.  Then put a string hanging from a dowel or some wooden BBQ skewers in the mixture and wait for your crystals to appear.  I am not sure if this works yet, so we will be posting in a few days if we see anything.
