Salt Water Taffy

Ingredients:

1 cup granulated sugar

2 tbs. cornstarch

3/4 cup light corn syrup

1/2 cup water

1/2 tsp. salt

3 tbs. unsalted butter

2 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions:

Grease a 9″ square pan with 1 tablespoon butter. In a sauce pan over medium heat, add the granulated sugar, cornstarch, corn syrup, water and salt. Stir until well combined. Add 2 tablespoons butter and stir constantly until the sugar is completely melted. Do not stir after the sugar melts. Cook until the candy reaches 260° on a candy thermometer. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the flavoring extract and food coloring. Pour the candy into the prepared pan and allow to cool enough to handle. Remove the candy from the pan and pull until the candy is opaque and satiny. Pull the candy in 1/2″ strips. Cut into 1″ pieces and wrap in waxed paper.
