HI to all hope you are having a super day,
so I don't know what went wrong I followed one
of the recipes here, I was trying to make boiled sugar for some gems.
The recipe said 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cups of light corn syrup.
put in microwave on 50%power for 6 min then full power for 2 min.
I opened the microwave and my lovely sugar was dark brown and was smoking I had to throw it away, please does someone have the correct microwave times
THANK YOU TO ALL That respond you Rock!!!!!
It sounds like you scorched the sugar... easy to do.
Try stopping it at 3 min and stirring, carefully. Then another 3 minutes or so...
I hope this helps.
Well since everyones microwave heats at a different time frame it is difficult to give exact times.You have to literally stand there and watch it untils it starts to bubble.My microwave heats fast and I have siezed many candy melts..I would say every 10 seconds check it...HTH
Thanks Kellertur I will try that
PM me if it doesn't work and I can send you the microwave recipe I use. Good Luck!
I tried to pm you but for some reason it just stays in my outbox and has not sent,
I would be so grateful for the microwave recipe you use. Thanks so much
Sorry you're having trouble. I always do mine on the stove using a candy thermometer.
I have tried a couple of ways in the microwave and it did not work, the first time I scorched it....lol and the second time it was not long enough I guess. If it is not to much of a hassle could u please send me your directions, thank you so much have a great evening.
I think the message will stay in your outbox until it's read, then moves to the sent folder. I just read and responded.
I try using a thermometer, but it must know I have no patience... I hate standing there. When it's good, it's GREAT... but when it's not...
hails, I use the recipe from Lorann Oils: https://www.lorannoils.com/p-8752-stove-top-hard-candy.aspx only change I make is add a pinch of kosher salt in with the salt.
Thank you so much ladies you are so kind and made my day, have a lovely weekend!!!
