Cook’s Tip: This can easily be done without professional equipment, such as a sugar thermometer, since the practical test of putting a few drops of the boiling sugar into a cup of cold water will tell you exactly what stage the sugar is at. If the result is a little past the desired stage, remove the pan from the heat, add a little warm water to lower the temperature and continue.
