Rock candy is not quite as easy to make as the internet directions may lead you to believe.
Not only does the stuff have to grow for a week or longer...you need 8 hands to do it.
We attempted. We failed.
We are going to try again.
Quick, funny story though. A few weeks ago we were making suckers, pretty easy to do, but our thermometer was broken--on the inside, and we had no idea. Needless to say, nothing came out except runny, strawberry liquid.
Wanna guess what came out trying to make rock candy?
Yep...runny, strawberry liquid...LOL.
Children, do not try this at home...let the adults do it, it makes for a funnier story!
