Happy Friday everybody! This week’s recipe is for homemade taffy! One thing that my mom has told me she remembers most about her grandmother is that she always had homemade candy around when they would go to visit. I was really excited to finally get to one of her candy recipes and this one for taffy is delicious! Here is how to make it:
- 2 cups sugar
- ½ cup distilled vinegar
- ¼ cup water
Combine all ingredients in a pan. Heat to 315° F. Pour out onto well-buttered plates. Use knifes or a spatula to turn edges into the center for even cooling. Allow to cool only slightly. Dip your fingers in cornstarch and then begin pulling and twisting the taffy while it is still warm. Once the taffy begins to lighten in color and gets hard to pull, twist into a long strand about ½ inch thick. Cut or break the taffy into bite size pieces and enjoy!
