Salt Water Taffy



SALT WATER TAFFY

1 c. sugar
2/3 c. water
2 tbsp. butter
1 tsp. flavoring-Vanilla extract
3/4 c. light corn syrup
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. salt
Food coloring of your choice

Grease a square 8x8x2 inch pan with butter. Mix together in a saucepan the sugar, water, corn syrup, and cornstarch. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until candy thermometer reads 256 degrees. Remove from heat at once. Stir in desired flavoring and salt; pour into a well-buttered pan. Allow candy to cool. When candy is just cool enough so that you are able to hold it in your hands, pull taffy until it is light in color and stiff. Add food coloring if you like, now. Continue pulling until the candy is cool and is difficult to stretch. Pull into 2-inch strips, cut and wrap in strips of waxed paper, twisting ends in different directions. Makes 1 pound candy.
