What is Rock Candy? Rock candy is the product of the further
refining by recrystallization of pure cane sugar. In fact, it is
the purest form of sugar available, because all impurities are
excluded as large crystals form. Crystal growth is based on the
particular characteristics of sugar (sucrose) chemistry, and
cannot be done with the various “sugar free” substitutes found in
the market. How is Rock Candy made? Rock Candy is made by a
process of crystallization, the same process that produces quartz
and diamonds in nature – with a different ingredient, of course.
It is made by breaking apart the sugar (sucrose) molecular
crystal lattice and then allowing it to re-form in conditions
that produce larger, purer crystals. A hot, saturated solution of
cane sugar and water is poured into large tanks. Careful
supervision of the cooling process produces the larger crystals,
which are then harvested as Rock Candy sticks, strings, or loose
crystals. History of Rock Candy For centuries, Rock Candy has
been recognized as having marked therapeutic and preservative
qualities. In fact, in the West, sugar was used only as a
medicine or preservative until – in the middle of the 18th
century - people “discovered” it made a sweet treat as well. The
earliest known date that white sugar was refined was about 200
BC, so it is probable that the further refining into what was
later known as “sugre candie” was at about that time. There are
many references to what we now call Rock Candy in literature.
There are several references to it in the poems of the Persian
poet Jalai-ad-Din Rumi, who lived in Turkey in the middle 1200’s.
One early English reference in 1584 seems to sum up the virtues
of Rock Candy where it is quoted “White sugar is not so good for
phlegume, as that which is called Sugar Candie.” And Shakespeare,
in Henry IV, (1596) referred to its therapeutic value as a throat
soother for long-winded talkers.
