    Looking for taffy recipe

    My grandmother used to make taffy. She would cook it in a cast iron pan. When it was done and cooled, we buttered out hands and pulled it until it was golden tan. Does anyone have this recipe? I remember we had to do it on a cold day with low humidity or it would never harden.

    Google "salt water taffy" or just "taffy". I found several recipes as I too recalled Mother making it on cold winter days. There are a variety of recipes. I haven't tried it yet, waiting to have grans to help pull it. Good luck.

    Thank you so much. I don't know why I never thought of searching PULL taffy. I missed the obvious, obviously.

    As kids we always went to a couples home in our church the Sunday evening before Christmas and we pulled Taffy. I grew up in a little country church and we often did things like this. So, here is the taffy recipe we still use. ENJOY!
    Jim's Taffy
    5 c. cane sugar (use cane)
    1 c. honey
    2 T vinegar
    lb butter (must use butter, oleo will not work.
    1 c. water
    Cook to hard crack stage (270 degrees). Cool in pans until able to handle. Pull until white in color. Stretch like a rope and cut in pieces. Each piece needs to be wrapped in waxed paper.
