   1 3/4 c  Sugar
     1/2 c  Water
     1/2 c  Light corn syrup
            Salt
            Food coloring optional
     1/4 ts Flavoring
            Confectioners' sugar
  
      In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, water, corn syrup and a dash of
   salt, and stir until the sugar dissolves. Cover the pan and bring the
   mixture to a rolling boil. Remove the lid, place a thermometer in the pan,
   and cook the mixture to 250~F (121~ C.) {hard-ball stage, pages 8-11}. Add
   the food coloring, if using, and continue cooking until the mixture reaches
   285~ to 290~ F. (140~ o 143~ C.). Remove the pan from the heat and let the
   misture cool a few minutes. Add the flavoring and cover for five minutes.
   Pour into a buttered pan measuring 7 by 10 inches (18 by 25 cm.). Cut the
   candy into strips with oiled scissors as soon as it is cool enough to
   handle. Then cut it into squares or diamond shapes. When the candy is cold,
   dust it with confectioners' sugar to prevent sticking. Source: Time-Life
