Ingredients

  • 3 Pounds of Sugar
  • A Pint of Water

Method

Continue boiling, and after a few minutes dip the skimmer in the boiling sugar. Strike it on the edge of the boiler. Blow through the holes, and you will find that, if the sugar is of the right degree, it will form into small globules or air bubbles on the other side. This is the best degree for Creams, and also gives a rich flavor to preserves.
