This is a recipe I found in my Mother's Recipes. She had clipped it from a newspaper and I do not know which one so proper credit can be given. It sounds like a good recipe so I decided to submit it hoping others might enjoy it.


1 tablespoon cider vinegar
2 teaspoons instannt powdered coffee
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark corn syrup
1 tablespoon baking soda

Preparation / Directions:

Lightly grease a 13 x 2 inch pan. Mix together vinegar and coffee. In a heavy 3 quart sauce pan stir together the sugar, corn syrup and vinegar mixture. Over medium-low heat, stirring until sugar dissolves, bring to a boil. Continue cooking, without stirring, to 300 F. on a candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water separates into threads that are hard and brittle. Remove from heat. Quickly stir in baking soda, mixing thoroughly. Pour into prepared pan. DO NOT spread or texture will not be spongy; candy will spread itself. Cool; break into pieces.
