This recipe for Mémé's Pulling Taffy, by Patti Lee, is from The Gleeson Family Cookbook ,
one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help
families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.
2 C molasses 1 C brown sugar 1 Tbsp. vinegar 2 Tbsp. butter 1/3 C water 1 pinch baking soda
Boil all together until a little tried in cold water becomes brittle. Pour on a buttered dish and allow to cool. When cool enough to handle, rub butter on hands and pull the candy (small portions at a time) until light in color. Twist and cut into pieces. This is a version of the candy I remember Mémé made for us.
