Old Fashioned Taffy

2 1/2 c Sugar
1/2 c Water
1/4 c Vinegar
1 tb Butter or margarine
1/8 ts Salt
1 ts Vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients except vanilla in a small Dutch oven; cook over low heat, stirring gently, until sugar dissolves. Cover and cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes to wash down sugar crystals from sides of pan. Uncover and cook over medium heat, without stirring, to soft crack stage (270 degrees). Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Pour candy onto a buttered 15- x 10- x 1-inch jellyroll pan or slab of marble. Let cool to touch; butter hands, and pull candy until light in color and difficult to pull. Divide candy in half, and pull into a rope, 1 inch in diameter. Cut into 1-inch pieces; wrap each in wax paper. Yield: about 40 (1-inch) pieces.
