How do you isolate dry sugar from a mixture of sugar water and rice

    Sounds like a high school chemistry question. Pretty simple really. The rice is not dissolved in water, so it can separated by either passing the whole mixture through a filter (like a simple paper filter for a coffeemaker), or just letting it stand and then carefully pour out most of the water after the grains settle. The latter will waste some of water and sugar though. After that you’ll end up with a solution that you just need to boil until all the water evaporates, leaving you with dry sugar. You can even simply let the solution stand for a while and the water will evaporate, but that’ll take much more time than boiling, obviously.
