    magnet won't filter won't boiling won't evaporating will leave you with sugar crystals and salt crystals, mixed but "separated"?

    So I suppose just evaporating? @douglaswinslowcooper

    Just evaporating the mixture. Because the sugar is dissolved, filtering wouldn't work, nothing in the mixture is magnetic, and unless you boil it enough to evaporate all the water, that wouldn't work, it would just leave you with a more concentrated sugar syrup (like candy-making).
