If I don’t have a thermometer, roughly how many minutes should it be cooked to reach the hard crack stage?

So many people on my xmas list love these than I could not dream of not making them every year. Lucky for me they are very easy to make. I have found it helpful to sift my baking soda thru a small sieve before adding so that it mixes in smoothly.
