Rock Candy

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 6 cups sugar
  • food coloring
  • 3 (6-inch) lengths of string

Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan. Remove from the heat and add 3 cups of the sugar, stirring until it dissolves. Slowly add the remaining sugar, reheating the water if necessary.when all the sugar has dissolved, pour into three heatproof jars or glasses. Stir in three drops of food colouring into each jar. Tie each length of string around the middle of a pencil. Lay atop the jars so the strings hang down into the liquid. Crystals will begin to form in an hour and continue to solidify for several days. If a layer forms on the surface of the water, break it. When the water evaporates, it is ready to eat.
