Pat Crayton


2 cups Karo Dark Corn Syrup
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/3 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine first four ingredients in saucepan
Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves.
Continue cooking to hard ball stage (260 degrees F) or until a small amount forms a hard ball when tested in very cold water.
Remove from heat; stir in soda and vanilla. Beat until smooth and creamy.
Pour into buttered pan; let stand until cool enough to handle.
Pull until it has a satin-like finish and is light in color. Pull into long strips 1/2 inch wide.
Cut into 1 inch pieces with a scissors and wrap in wax paper.
For vanilla taffy substitute light corn syrup for dark corn syrup. Taffy may be flavored with 1/2 teaspoon flavoring or tinted with 1/3 teaspoon food coloring.
