Well, here we are on day seven, and this is what the rock candy looks like:
No, that is not the same picture from last week. There are zero crystals on those sticks. I remember the first time I tried to make rock candy, in fourth grade. Everyone did the same experiment. Some kids had glasses OVERFLOWING with sugar crystals. I had nothing. Zippy. This is now, officially, my fifth time IN MY LIFE attempting to make rock candy and there are still no crystals.
We will try again tomorrow with a new recipe.
