 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  cups          water
    6      cups          sugar
    3      6            lengths of string
                         food coloring
 Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Remove from heat and add 3 cups of the
 sugar stirring till dissolved. Slowly add the remaining sugar, reheating the
 water if necessary. When all the sugar is dissolved, pour the mixture into 3
 heat proof jars or glasses. Stir 3 drops of liquid food coloring and 1/2
 teaspoon of flavoring into each jar. Tie each length of string around a
 pencil. Lay on top of the jars (1 string per jar) so that the strings hang in
 the liquid. Crystals will begin to form in 1 hour, and continue to solidify
 for several days. If a layer forms on the surface of the jar break it. When
 the liquid completely evaporates, the candy is ready.

 NOTES : I use pint size canning jars. Use the flavors you like, most grocery
 stores carry candy flavorings. Use the food color you desire as well.
