I messed up the first two batches of this. Each time, I could not get the temperature of my boil above about 216 after about 12 minutes. Each time I ended up with a nice goopy ice cream topping which barely set, even after being frozen.
On the third try, while I watched all the steam escape from the pot at the beginning of the boil, it occurred to me that water boils at 212. The temperature of the mixture will remain steady until ALL the water is boiled off... then it will rise again. Once the temperature begins to rise again, there will be very little steam rising off of the pot. So be patient... it may take a few more than 10 minutes, but it will get there. Just watch the steam coming off the pot.
