Let the sugar boil a little longer. If you find that on drawing it out to a thread it snaps quickly, and also that while boiling the sugar presents the form of large pearls or globules on its surface, it will then have reached the Small Pearl degree. When the pearls become closely connected on the surface of the sugar, it will have reached the Large Pearl degree.
