I was skimming through my "Field Guide to Candy" today and the recipe for rock candy caught my eye. To start, I added sugar to boiling water until the sugar dissolved.
Then I was supposed to cover wet bamboo skewers in sugar and let them sit in the dissolved sugar-water for a few days.
I decided not to add food coloring to them, because I figured that white, crystal-like candy would look better. I'll write again within the next week to tell all of you viewers how the project turned out. Until then, I will be trying new recipes!
