       Title: ROCK CANDY ON A STRING
  Categories: Candies
       Yield: 1 Servings
  
       5    Cups sugar
       2    Cups water
  
   Dissolve 5 c. sugar in 2 c. water, and cook until it reaches 250 F. (hard
   ball stage).  Don't stir after you've dissolved the sugar. Pour the hot
   liquid into a pie pan that has a string suspended across the top. You'll
   have to weigh the the ends so that it doesn't touch the bottom of the pan.
   Or you can punch holes in the edge of the pan and tie the string. You can
   also lay a skewer across and out of the pan. The string should be 3/4
   under the surface of the sugar water. Cover the pan with tin foil and DON'T
   TOUCH IT FOR A WHOLE WEEK!! In 7 days, lift out the string or stick and it
   will be covered with sugar crystals! Patricia Foster
