Today is National Taffy Day. In honor of this auspicious occasion, I wanted to post a link to a recipe for making pulled taffy. The first page gives detailed instructions, and after reading and/or doing this you will probably be able to make other recipes more effectively. I have never tried making pulled taffy myself, but I grew up reading books that talked about it because I read a lot of old books. Pulling taffy was much more common in past times. (Television, computer games, etc. have deprived us of a lot of good, honest fun.)

Old Fashioned Pull Taffy – This recipe looks more appetizing. Maybe it would be good to use this recipe and follow the instructions from the page above.
Also, remember that in the old books it was common to describe pulling taffy as a job for a least two people. You may want to get a friend to help you on this one. :-)
