As a child, candy-making at Christmas was a memorable time. Everyone in our family had his or her favorite, which they usually shared. I enjoyed them all, but nothing could compare with my dad’s taffy.
I was told that he bought the special recipe from a German candymaker for $5. Perhaps that doesn’t sound like much, but remember that this was almost 100 years ago. I am proud to say that I still have the special iron pot that my dad used for his specialty.
