What I do is make candy sugar syrup on my stove. Real simple all you need is a candy thermometer.
Sorry if I wasn't clear, this is what I am talking about.. Water + Table Sugar + Nitrogen Source + Heat.

I would be very surprised if this could be made in a boiling wort, would be interested in learning how to do that.
