Homemade Saltwater Taffy is actually pretty simple to make and it makes for a great gift too.
1 c. sugar
2/3 c. water
1 tsp. flavoring-Vanilla extract (or any other flavor you prefer)
3/4 c. light corn syrup
1 tsp. salt
Food coloring of your choice
Generously butter a square 8x8x2 inch baking pan.
Remove from heat at once.
Stir in desired flavoring and salt; pour into a well-buttered pan.
Allow candy to cool enough so that you are able to hold it in your hands,
Then pull taffy until it is light in color and stiff.
Add food coloring if you like, now.
Continue pulling until the candy is cool and is difficult to stretch. Pull into 2-inch strips, cut and wrap in strips of waxed paper, twisting ends in different directions.
Makes 1 pound candy.
