Molasses Candy from the Rumford Complete Cook Book 1930 (for my Twitter buddies)


2 cups molasses
2 cups brown sugar
2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup water
2 Tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon soda (I assume baking soda)

Put all the ingredients, ecept the soda, into a large saucepan, and cook fast, till a little of the mixture dropped into cold water feels brittle (256 degrees F.) Beat in the soda and turn onto a greased slab or agate tray to cool. As soon as it can be easily handled, pull with the fingers till white. Cut into pieces before it is too hard.

That's the whole recipe!

Thank you. I am surprised that looks so simple. Don't have enough molasses to make tonight, but am bookmarking to try it in a few days.
It sounds delicious!

I hope this is the one...You should see this cookbook, no cover, drawn upon by children, dog-eared. I'm going to try the fudge recipe: only 4 ingredients!!
