I found a recipe for lollipops. It uses 2:2:1 ratio of sugar:water:vinegar. What exactly is the role of vinegar in it?
The recipe was:
- 10 spoons of granulated/crystalic sugar
- 10 spoons of water
- 4 spoons of vinegar
- food coloring
Combine ingredients and cook approx 10-12 minutes since water has started to boil. All water has to boil out. You can test if it is boiled enough by making a drop.
