Directions:
Combine sugar, vinegar and water in heavy saucepan. Stir well before you put it on stove. Cook this over low heat about 8 - 10 minutes until it reaches soft ball stage (228 degrees). Add 1/2 stick of margarine and 1 tsp vanilla. Pur the mixture onto a buttered platter and let it cool enough so you can handle it. Now pick up the 'blob' and begin to pull it. The more you pull, the whiter it gets. When it has reached the right consistency, but into small pieces with a pair of scissors. They are easier to use than a knife. You'll need to keep a pat of butter handy to rub on your fingers while pulling the candy as it will be hot.
