First she measured out 2 cups of water
then poured the water into a saucepan.
And added each cupful to the pan. Doing this she noticed that the water turned white.
Time to stir,
Once the water/sugar mixture started making bubbles(boiling), we pulled it off. She put in a few drops of food coloring and I added some strawberry flavoring. Then more stirring. And yes, she did all the stirring herself, she let me stir all of twice, and only cause I said I wanted to feel how it wasn't crunchy anymore.
No pictures as we let it cool then poured it into the jars. Just plastic wrap wasn't strong enough to hold the sticks in place, I folded foil into layers then stabbed a stick through for each.
