Let the kids pull taffy,

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

My little niegbor kids came over, and I made taffy, Honey taffy. the kids had never pulled taffy, and they had the best time. Simple recipe.

1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup honey, 1/8 teas salt, 1 tablespoon butter.

Cook all the ingredients together until a ball is formed when dropped in cold water. Pour on buttered platter until cool enough to pull. Butter hands and pull until hard twisting taffy for an attractive finish. All taffy takes two people to pull unless you have a hook set in the wall to secure one end of the taffy, When taffy is cool cut with scissors and wrap in paper.

Cool! Thanks Irene-it looks like the weather will be yucky again tomorrow and I will have two restless kids on my hands-we havn't made taffy before, this should be fun!

I bet I could put some green food coloring in it for St. Patricks day!
