Molasses Candy

  • 1 quart molasses
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • Butter size of 1/2 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon soda
Put molasses, brown sugar, butter the size of half an egg, into a six-quart kettle. Let boil over a slack fire until it begins to look thick, stirring it often to prevent burning. Test it by taking some out and dropping a few small drops ina cup of cold water. If it hardens quickly and breaks short between the teeth it is boiled enough. Now put in baking soda, and stir it well; the pour it out into well-buttered flat tins. When partly cooled, take up the candy with your hands heavily buttered, then pull and double, and so on, until the candy is a whitish yellow. It may be cut in strips and roll, roll, rolled or twisted. If flavoring is desired, drop the flavoring on the top as it begins cool, and when it is pulled, the whole will be flavored.
