Pour the sugar water into a pot.
Set the pot on the stove, and turn the stove to medium heat.
Let the water boil. As it boils the water will evaporate.
Check the boiling process regularly. As the water boils, sugar crystals will form along the sides of the cooking pot. Once all the water has evaporated, remove the pot from the stove and you'll be left with just the sugar remaining in the pot.
