Cook over low heat: stir only until sugar dissolves. Remove sugar crystals from the sides of the pan with a damp cloth wrapped around a fork. Continue cooking over medium high beat, without stirring, to the soft crack stage (270 degrees). Pour the hot syrup onto a large buttered platter. When cool enough to handle, pull until toffy is light-colored and porous. Twist into ropes, and place on builcrcd pan. Cut with scissors, or dent into bite- sized pieces with a knife and break opart when cold. Before handling the warm candy, butter hands well or rub them with cornstarch. To have enough taffy for a large pulling party, do not double the recipe. Instead, make several batches in separate pans. PECAN ROM, Mr*.
