In your instruction you mentioned either rock sugar or castor sugar. But you mention to include both to boil in step 3. can you clarify on that please.

this recipe is the same as per what's on this link :

minus the orange peel.

step 3 on the sugar was copied direct from the link as well.

i believe that this recipe means to say that either type of sugar can be used, since the ingredients were edited to accomodate a choice of either sugar type.
