Rock Candy


  • 1½ cups water

  • 6 cups sugar

  • food coloring

  • 3 - 6-in. lengths of string

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. Remove from the heat and add 3 cups sugar, stirring until it dissolves. Slowly add the remaining sugar, reheating the water if necessary. When all the sugar has dissolved, pour into 3 heat proof jars. Stir 3 drops of food coloring into each jar. Tie each length of string around a pencil. Lay atop jars so string lays i liquid. Crystals will begin to form within a hour and continue to solidify for several days. If layer forms on surface of water, break it. When water evaporates, candy is ready to eat.
