DIRECTIONS

Combine first 4 ingredients in small saucepan. Stir constantly over moderate heat until mixture begins to boil. Cook without stirring to 300° (brittle), using low heat after 280°. Wipe away sugar crystals from side of pan with damp cloth wrapped around fork. Remove from heat; remove cinnamon stick; color syrup bright red, stirring as little as possible to distribute color evenly.
