    Never was a big fan of rock candy, to be honest.

    On Staten Island, there’s a “restored” historic village, Richmondtown, where they’d have old time (from 1600s)faires and festivals and they always sold hand made rock candy. I always wanted some, but was never allowed.

    Not a big fan. I did try to make it at home once. I ended up with a cup of mold.

    Because eating pure sugar (aside from the food coloring) is fun. :p

    Seriously though, I was thinking of making this as a Mr. Wizard-y science lesson with the girls. I know the basic idea (super-saturate very hot water with sugar, then let cool and evaporate slowly with string hanging in solution). Does anyone know how long does it take for the sugar to crystalize? I don’t mind having an experiment sitting on my kitchen table for a few days. A few weeks might make me think twice.

    WistfulD: I did this as a kid, but unfortunately most of the science was left up to the adults 🙁 I don’t think it took longer than a few days though.
