ROCK CANDY CALAMITY
Two pounds of granulated sugar
A glass jar
Some cotton string -- measured to reach the bottom of the jar.
"Seed" string by soaking in water, rolling in sugar and allowing to dry for an hour
Tie seeded strings to a piece of cardboard that will fit over the jar
Heat 1 cup of water over medium heat, until boiling
Add 2 cups granulated sugar, stirring until clear
Add another cup of sugar until dissolved
Remove from heat and pour into jar
Suspend strings into jar
The next step is suppose to be "Watch the crystals grow over the course of a week ..." NOT over the course of 12 hours.
I am so getting an "F" in this project.
