Salt water taffy recipe from here
2 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 c. light corn syrup
3/4 c. water
2 Tbsp. margarine or butter (I used butter)
1 tsp. flavoring oil or extract (If you want a stronger flavor just add a little more)
Prepare a heat safe dish by lightly buttering it (I used a baking sheet) If you are making more that one flavor, prep said amount of dishes. Also lightly butter a spatula for each flavor, and have each flavor and food color ready.
When cool enough to handle, grease hands and pull the warm candy with fingertips, pulling out to about 12 inches at first. Quickly turn candy back from fingertips of one hand to the other hand, then catch center and pull again. This will incorporate air into the candy. Continue pulling until taffy is light in color and has a satiny gloss, about twenty minutes. Pull into a long rope, cut with greased scissors and wrap in waxed paper squares, twisting ends.
P.S Our trip is going great! Flying was so much fun. I'll have tons of pictures to share later. :)Pin It
