Instructions
  1. Heat a wok or large deep saucepan over high heat. A cast iron pan or a pan with low sides will not work well.
  2. Add 1/4 cup of the amaranth and stir constantly until most of the grains have popped and those that do not pop are a shade or two darker. Remove from the pan. Repeat with the remaining amaranth. Set aside.
  3. Place syrup in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a soft boil. Boil for about 7 minutes or until it reaches 244°F on a candy thermometer.
  4. Stir in amaranth, stirring just enough to coat. Scrape onto a large platter. Smooth out to l/2-inch thickness, allow to cool for 2 minutes or until it is partially set. Cut into bars. Wrap any that are not eaten immediately airtight and store in a cool, dry place.
