Personal Notes:
In making candy of any kind, use a saucepan with a good bottom exposure, have a clear fire, and be sure that the candy boils evenly all over the bottom of the pan. In making any kind of clear candy, never stir or disturb by moving or shaking the pan, and when pouring it out, never scrape the saucepan over it or allow any of the scrapings of the saucepan to fall into it. The violation of either of these rules will cause it to be course and sugary.
