Ingredients

  • 3 Pound of Sugar
  • A Pint of Water

Method

Dip the forefinger into iced water, and then into the boiling sugar, and instantly again into the iced water, to prevent burning the finger. Then pinch between the index finger and thumb. If a Small Thread forms, which breaks when the attempt is made to pull apart through the fingers, the proper degree is reached.
