I'd suggest making some small test batches. That's what worked best for me. A couple from the first batch still haven't hardened after almost two weeks. Now I've found a way to crank them out in 12 hours.Could someone please explain how to make sugar bricks ?
I tried this recipe except I baked for an hour and didn't leave the oven door open. Worked perfect. I used disposable 1/2 size steam table pans (9x13 inches). I reused the same pans with no issue. I loaded each pan with about 4lb of sugar and scored them into thirds or quarters. First batch was 8lb and the second 12lb batch is in the oven overnight. Edit: I realize this is a super old topic but thought it may be useful to someone.large batches look for Lauri's recipe. If you want to make a small batch 4lb bag, 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar, mix well place in 170 oven for about 30 min with the door cracked. Shut off wait till morning to pull from the oven.
My ad-hoc approach is 12 cups of sugar, about 1/3 cup water. Mix it together, put in a pan, pack it down,and let sit until hard (a few days).Could someone please explain how to make sugar bricks ?
