1 1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. corn syrup
Cook on medium heat until “spins a thread” Don’t burn! Keep stirring.
While boiling add:
1 cube butter, cut in pieces (wait til melts) then add
1 can evaporated milk, a little bit at a time.
Cook, stirring constantly at simmering temp, keeping it bubbling. Cook until it reaches the “soft ball stage”. Add 1 Tb. Vanilla. Test by dropping some in cold water. It should be the consistency you want. Takes about 20 minutes. If you cut the recipe in half, it only takes about 5 minutes. Use for apple dipping or as caramel candy or pour on popcorn. Also makes a great ice cream topping when thinned with a little milk.
