Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was an old-time pioneer recipe handed down from generation to generation. I can remember my mother teaching us how to pull the candy to make it full of bubbles by twisting it while pulling. When you lay it down on waxed paper, you can use knife to make dents in it and then it will break apart when it is completetly hard...you just hit it with the back of a knife.
