When I was growing up, we'd have taffy pulling parties. The more experienced taffy pullers could make the long strips of shiny candy pop as they worked it into rope-like streamers.-Sherrill Bennett, Rayville, Louisiana

Meet the Cook: French-Canadian children traditionally make this soft, chewy taffy on November 25, the feast day of St. Catherine. Bert, my husband, and I farm on the largest of the Thousand Islands. Often some of our nine children, 18 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren get in on the fun of pulling the taffy. -Betty Woodman, Wolfe Island, Ontario

OLD FASHIONED VINEGAR TAFFY



Old Fashioned Vinegar Taffy image

It's a "handed down" recipe that I got 20 years ago....You can add a few drops of food coloring or substitute another flavor extract (or both) for different colors/flavors...

Provided by ravinwulf

Categories     Low Protein

Yield 1 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 5

3 cups sugar
1/2 cup vinegar
1 cup water
1/8 cup butter (2 Tablespoons) or 1/8 cup margarine (2 Tablespoons)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Steps:

  • Mix sugar, vinegar, and water in a medium saucepan; stir well before putting on the stove. Cook over low heat about 8 to 10 minutes until it reaches (228F) the softball stage.
  • Add butter or margarine and vanilla.
  • Pour the mixture into a buttered platter and let it cool enough so you can handle it. Butter your hands well (important! keep enough butter on your hands otherwise you'll stick), pick up the blob and begin to pull it. The more you pull the whiter it gets.
  • When it has reached the right consistency, cut into small pieces with a pair of scissors (easier to use for this than a knife.)
