My candy thermometer, the stick only, is 5.25 " long. Is that standard? I am having trouble getting a pot big enough to make candy and a therm. long enough to touch the syrup. ( I sense I am setting myself up for alllllll sorts of replies.) thanks. m
This has happened to me, before, too. Depending on the recipe, quantity of candy, etc., you may have to angle your pot or your thermometer to get the bulb covered by the syrup to get an accurate reading.
