Ms Downing's Taffy

This recipe is from an old church cookbook.

1 cup white syrup
3 cups sugar
3/4 cup boiling water
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp vanilla

Bring syrup, sugar, water, and vinegar to a boil, add the cream of tartar. Cook to hard crack stage. Pour on greased platters. Sprinkle with vanilla. Butter hands and pull and twist when cooled enough to handle. Twist in rope lengths. Cut into 1-inch pieces with greased scissors, onto waxed paper.
