Like I said, I haven't made candy since going blind. As for the drop test, I never really *looked* at the result, it was much more how the cooled product felt. My concerns are more with things like not touching a hot pan by accidentally bumping the side while stirring, or getting the small amount of mix needed for a test rather than knowing when the stuff is done. Even when I could see I had very poor awareness of body position for things like the stirring mentioned above.
