Glazed Nuts
Perfect. Easy. Quick. Ok I'm new to candy making but in my view I think the "soft ball" stage (besides the thermometer and the drop in water test) appeared to be when the sugar syrup darkened and thickened to the point of maple syrup consistency. I mean real maple syrup. Hope this is helpful!

It was wonderful. I followed the suggestion about using cooked rice during the final stages.
