DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot, combine brown sugar, corn syrup, water and salt.
  • Cook over medium-low heat, stirring, until sugar is dissolved.
  • Do not let this come to a boil until sugar has completely dissolved.
  • Turn the heat up a bit and continue cooking to the hard ball stage (250F).
  • Add butter and stir to keep from scorching.
  • Cook until mixture will separate into hard but not brittle strands (270F) when tested in cold water.
  • Stir in the vanilla.
  • Pour candy in a thin sheet onto a greased slab.
  • (I don't have a slab. I turn a large metal baking pan upside down and grease the bottom- works great!).
  • Mark into squares while still warm, creasing it deeply.
  • Break into pieces as soon as it is cool.
