Ingredients

  • 3 Pounds of Sugar
  • A Pint of Water

Method

Boil up the sugar a little longer, dip the skimmer in it, and on finding that it shivers into a thready fringe from the edge, it will have reached the degree called the “Feather.” If large and elevated, the degree is the “Large Feather, ” or La Grande Plume. In a few minutes more they become small and flaky, and the next degree, the “Small Feather, ” or La Petite Plume, is reached.
