3 cups sugar
1 1/3 cups corn syrup
tsp salt
1 tsp unflavoured gelatin
1 tbsp cold water
1 tbsp baking soda

Oil a nine by nine inch or two loaf pans.
Combine sugar, corn syrup and salt in a large saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves, then continue cooking, stirring occasionally.
Soak gelatin in the cold water.
When candy mixture reaches 290 degrees the hard crack stage, immediately add the baking soda, then the soaked gelatin, in that order. Stir rapidly, then remove from the heat and continue to stir until the candy becomes thick and golden, about 1 minutes. Turn into the prepared pan.
Allow to cool thoroughly. Loosen candy from edges of the pan and remove. It may be necessary to dip the pan in hot water for a moment to remove it easily.
Cut or break in pieces. Wrap closely in waxed paper and store in a tightly covered container.
