Salt Water Taffy

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon flavor of any kind
  • 1 teaspoon food color(optional)
Instructions
Combine all ingredients except for flavor and food coloring. Turn heat up to medium and stir until sugar dissolves. Once dissolved stop stirring.

Let the mixture boil to hard ball stage which is 260 degrees if you don't have a candy thermometer than when a drop of syrup tried in water forms a hard ball then it has reached its temperature. After it reaches 260 turn heat off and add flavor. Stir then add color, stir and pour your mixture into a buttered pan or on marble slab.

When cool enough to handle begin to pull the taffy repeatedly back and forth until the taffy is satiny and is hard to pull.

Pull taffy into a long rope and cut into pieces and wrap in wax paper. Makes about 40 pieces
