Tasty! I'm a dope and I thought "spins small thread" meant the sugar would make a thread right as it dripped off the spoon . I didn't realize it referred to dripping the sugar into cold water, so I way overcooked it. But it still turned out very tasty. I made it for a salad, but we are already snacking on it.
