Hi - I'm new to the forum, and I'm hoping that someone can help me with a problem I have boiling sugar. I've just bought the Sugarbaby book last week and have tried twice now to follow recipes in it, but both times, the sugar burnt before it had reached the right temperature. I've calibrated my thermometer, but today I also used the cold water test method as well, and the sugar burnt long before it got to the hard-crack stage. Can anyone tell me what might be going wrong? Please let me know if you need more details of equipment used etc.
