DIRECTIONS

  • Combine brown sugar, syrup, vinegar and salt in a large, heavy saucepan over low heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves, cover with a lid briefly to get any sugar crystals off the sides of the pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • Add milk in a thin stream, stirring constantly. Cook to firm ball stage (248°F / 120°C), or until a small amount of mixture is dropped into cold water and forms a ball that holds until pressed. Remove from heat.
  • Pour mixture onto a buttered marble slab or similar surface. As soon as outside edges cool enough to touch, take a small portion of the candy and start stretching or pulling. Use only the tips of your (greased) fingers. Pull until taffy becomes light in color and is no longer sticky.
  • Twist each pulled strip slightly and place on waxed paper. When all the candy is pulled, cut each piece into about 1-inch pieces. Wrap each piece in waxed paper and twist ends. Store in covered container at room temperature.
  • Makes about 100 pieces.
