       Title: ROCK CANDY ANYONE ??
  Categories: Candies
       Yield: 1 Servings
  
     1/2 c  Sugar
       1 c  Water
  
    Heat sugar and water in a saucepan over low heat until sugar is dessolved.
   Don't stir. Let it boil 1 minute. Let it cool 15 min. Pour into a glass jar
   with a wide mouth. Put a weight (paper clip or bead) on one end of a string.
   Tie the other end to the middle of a pencil so that the string is straight
   when dropped into the jar with a pencil across the top. Let it sit for a
   week or more.
      After a few days crystals will form on the string. You may need to break
   the crust on top of the water to help it evaporate Some crystal growers tap
   the glass occasionally to keep things growing. I think you can grow them on
   a stick too. Good luck! This recipe for Candy Crystals (What I call rock
   candy) was in the Denver Post on Dec. 8. I remember doing this as a kid and
   wanted to try it again with my children.  Judi Penny
   
   I hope that you have as much fun watching your children, as I did with my
   Grandchildern and Great Grandchildern, as the crystals formed on the
   strings. Be ready for the how dose it work questions. I did cover the jar
   top with a layer of cheese cloth to keep out unwanted stuff in the jar.
