Directions:
Put sugar and hot water together and let boil over fire to hard ball stage without stirring to 250 degrees. Put salt and soda in the half and half cream ; add by tablespoon to sugar/water mixture while it is still boiling. After candy starts boiling the second time, add butter and let boil to hard ball stage again 265-270 degrees. Pour out on a greased marble slab, wait until it gets cool enough to pull and not burn your hands. Pull until it gets very stiff and turns white. Then stretch out of a cabinet and cut into pieces with scissors. Let lay for about 15 minutes and put it in a tin can until it turns creams. Be sure and don’t stir while cooking and when you pull candy, stand in a cool place….not indoors.
