Honey Taffy

No recipe image available.Make a batch of honey taffy and invite friends over for a taffy pull party! Pulling taffy aerates it, or incorporates many tiny air bubbles throughout the candy. This makes it lighter and chewier.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup honey
1/8 teaspoon cream of tarter
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vinegar

Cooking Directions:

  1. Combine the sugar, syrup, and honey in a heavy saucepan. Heat until the sugar dissolves. Add the cream of tartar and cook, stirring constantly, to soft crack stage 285°F (140°C) or until mixture separates into hard but not brittle threads, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the vinegar and butter.
  2. Pour mixture onto a buttered marble slab or similar surface. As soon as outside edges cool enough to touch, fold to center and make a long roll. Start stretching or pulling while hot. Pull until honey becomes light and porous and small strings develop.
  3. Cut into short pieces and wrap individually in waxed paper or plastic wrap. Store in sealed container for at least 2 days to soften.

Makes about 1 pound candy.
