Frequently Asked Questions

Can I reuse the wooden sticks for another batch of rock candy?

It’s best to use new sticks for each batch to prevent any leftover flavors from affecting the new candy.

Can I make rock candy without a candy thermometer?

While a candy thermometer is recommended for accuracy, you can test the syrup’s readiness by dropping a small amount into cold water. If it forms hard, brittle threads, it’s ready.
