ROCK CANDY

You need: a clean one quart large mouth canning jar, a piece of
clean white string, a metal weight such as a paper clip or metal
washer, a pencil, a knife or fork, sugar, boiling water

Fill the jar with sugar. Slowly pour boiling water into the jar.
Push a kitchen knife down into the water so that the sugar gets
wet all the way down to the bottom of the jar. Add more water slowly
and then stir to make sure that all of the sugar dissolves. Tie a
paper clip weight to one end of the string. Tie the other end of
the string to the pencil. Place the pencil across the mouth of the
jar. Roll the sting around the pencil until the weight is almost
touching the bottom of the jar. Set the uncovered jar aside
undistrubed in a warm place for several days. Crystals will grow
on the string, on the jar and on the surface of the sugar solution.
Break up the crust from time to time so that the water can evaporate.
As the water evaporates, more crystals grow.
