A question about a recipe: Wicked Brittle

6c5c1958 62d1 4d3d b360 3c0ecd80e5e4  img 5172

I have a question about the recipe "Wicked Brittle" from gingerroot. I don't have a candy thermometer. Is there a visual cue or some other way to know if the brittle is ready for the baking soda?

Before candy thermometers were widely available, our mothers and grandmothers used a different system to measure temperature -- and it still works! :)

The idea is that you drop a small amount of the boiling candy into a glass of cold water and gauge how it reacts. Here's a guide:
