       Title: VINEGAR TAFFY
  Categories: Candies
       Yield: 60 Servings
   1 1/2 c  Sugar
     1/2 c  Water
       4 tb Vinegar
     1/4 ts Cream of tartar
       1 ts Lemon extract
   Place sugar, water, vinegar and cream of tartar in saucepan. Cook to
   soft-crack stage (285 deg. on candy thermometer). Stir in lemon extract and
   pour out on a buttered platter. When cool enough to handle, butter hands
   and pull until white and glossy. Cut with buttered scissors into sticks or
   cushions. Store in tightly covered tin for several weeks to allow candy to
   mellow. This is a recipe of my grandmother’s dating back to about 1900.
   “Taffy pulls” were a social event in the “old days” - often sponsored by
   churches and held at a member’s home. The candy, when mellowed, is a lot
   like a mint except with a lemon flavor. Very good! Hope you enjoy!
