Lela’s Butter Taffy

4 c. sugar
1/3 c. butter
½ c. water
¼ tsp. Cream of tartar
1 pkg. Food coloring
Lg. Platter, buttered

Mix the sugar, tartar, butter and water into saucepan and cook at 275 degrees while stirring frequently. When the taffy is at the “hard crack” stage, pour onto the platter and cool. Once cooled, divide mixture into portions and color the desired shade. Pull the taffy until it is opaque in color and stiff. Cut into ½ x ½ inch ropes and wrap with wax paper.
