Taffy Is LIQUIDY
I have now done this twice, my poor family has no taffy because I am having soo many problems.
I found a recipe that doesn't have any glycerin or vinegar and I followed it perfectly.
My only problem is my taffy is liquidy. I mean you can't pull this stuff. I have now done it twice, same result...
My concern is that the candy is not getting to a high enough temp. and that is why I am left with taffy that is covered in cornstarch, as a last resort to try to thicken it up, and has to stay frozen to look solid like taffy.
The worst part is that it tastes right, soo right. I could use the help. Thank you.
Sorry to hear of your taffy troubles! It does sound like the cooking temperature may be the issue. Are you using a candy thermometer?
Have you tested to see if it is accurate by putting it in a pot of water and bringing it to the boil. Water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit.
If the thermometer reads something different, adjust your recipe temperature to accommodate the difference.
Maybe some other candy makers who've run into the same problem and can tell you what to do if taffy is liquidy.
