Okay, I just made the first batch of syrup. I hope my improvisations are okay: I only have an aluminum pot, so I put the mixture in one of their Corelle water bowls, put a small amount of water in the bottom of the pot and placed the bowl in it. I let the pot water boil about six minutes while stirring the mixture. The mixture itself didn't come to a boil (that I could tell), but I scalded the tip of my finger when I checked the temperature of it. Also, I only had a clear glass jar to store it in, so I wrapped the jar with foil to make it dark.
As soon as I can I'll see if I can find a small glass or non-aluminum pot and a dark glass jar.
