Vinegar Candy
Vinegar candy has been in homes for many years.  Mothers have made it for their children and families with love.  I myself have made all the items listed on these pages and my family loves this candy as well.
2 Cups of  Sugar
1 Tbsp. Water
1/2 Cup Vinegar
1 Piece of butter the size of an egg
1/4 Tsp. vanilla extract
1 Medium saucepan
1 Wooden spoon
1 Platter (Well buttered)

Add into saucepan your vinegar, water and sugar and place on the stove on a medium-high heat.  Add butter and bring up to a boil.  Stir until sugar and butter are dissolved.  Let cook around 15 to 20 minutes without stirring.  Care must be taken not to burn the mixture.  A good rule of thumb to follow is to watch the mixture cook and remove it from the heat when it starts to turn a slight golden color.   After that time pour the solution into the bettered platter and let stand.  After solution hardens break into small pieces and sprinkle a good amount of confectionary sugar on the pieces.  This will add a great taste and keep the pieces from sticking together.

     * Note:  As with the candy above, care should be taken with
                 the hot solution.
