Molasses Candy


  • 2 cups molasses
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon soda
  • 2 tablespoons butter


Put the molasses, sugar, and butter into a thick sauce-pan or kettle and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Boil until the mixture becomes brittle when tried in cold water. Stir constantly at the last to prevent burning. Add vinegar and soda just before removing from the fire. Pour into a well-greased pan and let it stand until cool enough to handle. Then pull until light and porous and cut in small pieces with scissors, arranging on buttered plates. Serves sixteen to twenty.
