This Old Fashioned Taffy Candy New Orleans Style Recipe is the sweet treat that your grandmother made for you into her farmhouse kitchen.
1/2 cup Hot Water
1 Tablespoon Butter
1/3 cup White Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
1 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 cup mild Sorghum or New Orleans Molasses
Combine all but soda and vanilla. Boil until very hardball stage (250 degrees). Add soda until well mixed. Add vanilla and pour on buttered platter. Turn in edges until cool enough to pull. Pull until light in color. Cut with buttered scissors.
Beware: The hotter you pull taffy, the more brittle it will be. It can burn fingers. Be Careful !
