Not sure what to do next time. I used a grease free pastry brush and water to eliminate sugar crystals on the side, let the candy thermometer to get to 300 ( hard crack stage) , poured in the tiny amount of baking soda and stirred, it bubbled up nice, was about to pour it on baking sheet.....nope, it had turned into cement. Heavy cement. Had to soak in hot water 5 hours to get it out. Ugh! ....
