      sponge candy

      1 c. sugar
      1 c. dark corn syrup
      1 tbsp.

      vinegar
      1 tbsp. soda

      Makes about 1 pound. (This is a microwave recipe.)

      Combine sugar, syrup, and vinegar into 2 quart mixing bowl. Cover and
      microwave at high 3 minutes; stir well. Microwave, uncovered, at high 4 1/2
      to 10 minutes until thickened (300 degrees).

      Test by dropping small amount
      in cold water. Remove threads from water. If threads bend microwave a little
      longer.

      Candy is done if threads break. Quickly stir in soda; mix well to prevent
      baking soda lumps. Mixture will foam up as soda is added.

      Pour into
      buttered, foil-lined 8 x 8 inch or 9 x 9 inch baking dish, allowing mixture
      to spread itself. Let stand until firm. Remove from dish and break into
      pieces.

      If desired, you can dip them into melted chocolate (chocolate chips
      work well).
