We saw the photo at masterfile for taffy pulling in the 1940s. Question. Have these masterfiles been taken recently and staged to look like the ’40s ’50s, and 60s, or are they historic? They may be historic, but they’re such hams it made me wonder. I like the pictures.
- In handling or pulling all boiled candies the hands should be well buttered to prevent the mixture sticking to them.
- If the pot in which candy is boiled is buttered for an inch or two down, the liquid will not boil over.
- Flavors are more delicate when not boiled in candy but added afterward.
- Use fresh cold water for each trial of candy; preferably ice-water.
