Saturday, January 6, 1934

I got up about . Went to Mary Hampton’s party. We had a taffy pull. Daddy came after me. Formed a club.

American Taffy Recipe

1/2 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
1 1/4 cups light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups water
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar

Melt butter; add sugar mixed with cream of tartar. Add remaining
ingredients. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Cook to hard ball stage.
Pour into greased platters. Butter hands and pull from one hand
to another. (Or use a taffy pull hook if you have one.) Soon the
taffy will become white. Pull into thin strips. Lay on greased
surface. When hard, break into bite-size pieces and eat.
