    I have attempted the sugar + water countless times and have yet to be successful. It always boils clear, never turns into any shade of amber whatsoever, and ends up a pile of rock hard burnt sugar. If ANYONE out there can get it to work, I'd love to meet them! It always works to just heat the sugar ALONE, without water, on medium until it turns that amber color we're looking for- always without fail! Plus you can use however much sugar you want.

    Yud-Do you use the same amount of sugar or do you modify it since you don't use water?
