Molasses Candy


  • 1 cupful of brown sugar
  • 2 cupfuls of New Orleans molasses
  • 1 tablespoonful of butter
  • 1 tablespoonful of vinegar
  • 1 teaspoonful of baking-soda


Put into a large saucepan the brown sugar, molasses, butter and vinegar. Mix them well and boil until it will harden when dropped in water. Then stir in the baking-soda, which will whiten it, and turn it into a greased tin to cool. When it can be handled pull it until white and firm; draw it into sticks and cut it into inch lengths.
