light Salt Water Taffy

Salt Water Taffy Makes 24 Pieces From the kitchen of Eric Steventon


1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2/3 cup white corn syrup
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
Few Drops Food coloring
1/2 teaspoon Flavoring extracts (vanilla, almond, orange, peppermint, etc.)


Mix sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan. Stir in corn syrup, butter, water and salt. Cook over a moderate heat until mixture reaches 254 degrees or until a few drops tested in cold water form a ball which holds its shape. Remove from heat, add a few drops of food coloring and flavoring extract, and pour into a buttered platter. Cool until it can be handled comfortably. Butter your hands and pull the taffy until it is light in color and firm enough to hold a shape. Stretch into a roll about 1 inch in diameter and snip off bits with kitchen shears. Wrap each piece in wax paper.
