Will have to try again. This is obviously something that takes practice, and there were a few problems I encountered that were not mentioned in the recipe. It takes a *long* time for the sugar to dissolve, and little bubbles form during the stirring stage that make the syrup look like it still has sugar in it. Also, and this may be an issue involving my stove or human error, but I simply could not get the mixture up to 300 degress. I nearly burnt it trying to do so. Those issues aside, this was a really fun recipe to make that looks and tastes great. I made a bit of a mess playing with the long fibers that formed on the spoon! I also used some of the leftover sugar stuck on the side of the pot to make a candy jellyfish: I took a plastic spoon and scraped some sugar to form a ball, then slowly pulled it out to form long fibers. I liked this recipe, and will try to iron out the kinks the next time I make it.
