Salt Water Taffy

We made saltwater taffy a few days ago. It’s really fun to get to pull, shape, and eat the candy. We made 41 pieces but now there are, well, ahem, none. That’s right, none. The candy was tramped and stamped upon by thirty white horses on a red hill and then swallowed up into a big red pit. In case you want pictures of it being made, here they are.

Pulling the taffy.

Pulled, unshaped taffy.

The finished candy.

Here is the recipe we used.

    Leftcoastonlooker,

    We used blue food coloring, but when it mixed with the butter it turned green. I know it looks like….. well, let’snot go there. OOPS!

  7. Oh, how wonderful! I remember doing this as a child!

  8. We love making taffy, although ours is crunchier than it is supposed to be. I guess that is because we make it wrong, but we do like it anyway!
