You were probably looking at a British recipe.

It's just a UK term for superfine white sugar. It has a finer grain than the regular store-bought granulated sugar we get here in North America.

You can buy it as "jelly sugar" or "superfine sugar" here....or just use a recipe that doesn't use it. Martha's is great:

Here's an excellent step-by-step how-to for you too:
