Recipe for family meals :

White Taffy

It is many years since Hub-UK was first launched. It has been created from recipes contributed form all over the world, from professionals and amateurs alike. A great many of the recipes do not have any details as to who sent them in or from where they came. It would be a shame not to share them with you for this reason alone.

This recipe is one such recipe. If you know where it originated, or perhaps it is even yours, let me know and I will add the necessary credits and acknowledgements.

"The most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking - love, for those you are cooking for" ~ Sophia Loren.


2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon glycerine
2 1/2 tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon lemon or vanilla extract


  • Boil the sugar, water, glycerine and vinegar to the hard-ball stage (127°C).
  • Add flavouring.
  • Pour on to a greased platter.
  • When cool enough to handle, pull until very white, stretch into a long rope, and cut into short pieces.
