Rock Candy

1 glass jar or drinking glass
1 piece of cotton string
1 pencil or stick
1 paper clip
food coloring (optional)
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
additional sugar

Tie a short piece of cotton string to the middle of the pencil or
stick. Attach a paper clip to the end of the string for a weight.
Moisten the string very lightly, and roll in a bit of sugar (this
will "attract" the sugar crystals from the syrup to the string).
Place the pencil or stick over the top of the glass or jar with
the string hanging down inside. Heat the water to boiling, and
dissolve the 2 cups of sugar into it. For the biggest crystals
FAST, heat the sugar-water solution a SECOND time, and dissolve as
much additional sugar as you can into it. Add a few drops of food
coloring to the solution if desired. Pour the solution into the
prepared glass or jar and leave undisturbed for a couple of days.
Depending on how much sugar you were able to dissolve into the
water, you should start to see crystals growing in a few hours to
a few days.
