1 cup water
2 ½ cups sugar
Flavor oil ($2 a bottle)
Tall narrow glass jar (mine used to have hot pickles veggies in it)
Short skewers (about 6 inches)
Then add ½ tsp. of oil flavoring. Flavoring with alcohol burns off to quickly and doesn’t leave much flavor behind, you may use it but it won’t have a lot of flavor. Stir until the color and flavor is well blended.
Clip the clothes pin on the end of the skewer and put the sugar covered end into the syrup. Put the bottle with the skewer in a light place where it will not be disturbed. I put mine on a window sill. Wait on whole week, seven days, or 168 hours. You may look at it but don’t disturb it. During the week some of the water will evaporate. This process keep the syrup saturated and so will help in the creating of the large sugar crystals on the stick.
