This didn't quite work for me, but i'm close. i found another recipe that called for 2c water and 4 c sugar. i used stawberry flavoring and red food coloring. i also "seeded" bamboo skewers with sugar before placing in the solution. I used a large mason jar and i covered it with wax paper and put a rubber band around the brim to keep it one, i then stuck the bamboo skewers through the top of the wax paper and secured them with clothespins. It sat for two weeks, crystals started forming after the first week but not as big as regular rock candy. I found i had more crystals growing into the bottom of the jar than i had growing on the skewers. The candy tasted really good but the crystals were a small size. Not sure what i did wrong but i know i'm close to getting this right. any suggestions let me know!
