Today we boiled it to when you put in in water it turns into hard taffy (250 – 255 deg f). Then we poored it on a cooky pan and mix fast ! (it hardens and sugaratizes quick. )
We made sugar insted of candy, becus I wonted to. If we wanted candy, we would not boil it as long.
It is fun, but it is hard work. It tastes like maple syrup mixed with sugar! I love the taste! The work is fun, it is sort of worth it. If I had to do this all the time for most of my sugar, I would plant a lot of Maples.
P.S We got 2 1/2 cups of sugar!
Minus what we ate 😉
