Recipe for Salt Water Taffy


    Salt Water Taffy

    1 cup granulated sugar
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    3/4 cup light corn syrup
    1/2 cup water
    2 tablespoons margarine
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    Mix sugar and cornstarch in a saucepan, then stir in remaining ingredients. Cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Continue cooking, without stirring, to 260 degrees F. After boiling ceases, stir in 1 teaspoon flavoring (pure oil) and food coloring. Pour onto a greased sheet.

    When cool enough to handle, grease hands and pull until satiny and light in color. Cut into 1-inch pieces. Wrap in wax paper.
