Instructions
Line a 10” x 15” pan with a silicone mat, or butter a jelly roll pan. Place in the refrigerator to chill. In a large, heavy saucepan, combine water, corn syrup, sugar, salt and glycerine. Stir constantly over high heat until mixture comes to a boil. Place thermometer in pan and cook to 260º. Remove from heat and let stand for three minutes. Without scraping the sides of pan, stir in butter, flavoring and color. Pour into prepared chilled pan. Let rest for 5-10 minutes. While it is resting, fold edges into the center to keep the edges soft. After the taffy is cool enough to handle, liberally butter hands and begin to pull taffy. Pull the taffy until it lightens and becomes more elastic. When taffy is ready, pull into a rope and cut into 1” square pieces. Wrap with confectionary waxed paper.
