Pulled Molasses Candy

  • 1 cup molasses
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 T. cider vinegar
  • 3 T. butter

Preparation -
Combine the first 4 ingredents in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the mixture boils, stirring constantly. Lower the heat; cook & stir for about 30 minutes. The mixture will thicken. Cooking is done when a small amount (about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon) becomes brittle when dropped in a cup of cool water. Remove from heat. Stir in the butter. Pour onto a buttered, cookie sheet or jelly roll pan. Cool just long enough so that candy can be handled. Divide the candy into 2 or 3 pieces. With buttered hands, stretch and pull each piece into long, thin, rope-like strips until it is a light brown color. Cut the strips of candy into 1" to 1-1/2" long pieces. Wrap individual pieces of candy in waxed paper or plastic wrap, twisted on both ends.
