Basic Honey Taffy
Pure, natural honey—and nothing more—is all it takes to make old-fashioned pulled honey taffy.
Recipe Ingredients:1 cup honey
- In saucepan, cook honey, stirring constantly, to soft crack stage 285°F (140°C) or until mixture separates into hard but not brittle threads.
- Pour mixture onto a buttered marble slab or similar surface. As soon as outside edges cool enough to touch, fold to center and make long roll. Start stretching or pulling while hot. Pull until honey becomes light and porous and small strings develop.
- Cut into short pieces and wrap individually in waxed paper or plastic wrap. Store in sealed container for at least 2 days to soften.
Makes 1/2 pound candy.
