If you don't have one, you can get a cheap one from Wal-Mart for 3 dollars.Combine sugar, syrup, water, salt and glycerine in a 3 quart heavy bottomed saucepan. Glycerin can be bought from cake and candy supply companies and sometimes hobby stores.Cook on low heat and stir till sugar dissolves. Then heat without stirring until the candy reaches the hard ball stage or 260 degrees. Remove from heat and add butter, without stirring.When the butter is melted, pour candy into a shallow buttered pan. When cool enough to handle, gather it into a ball and pull until firm. This is the fun part, where 2 people can each grab a chunk and pull the taffy, folding it over and pulling again.Add food color and flavoring while pulling. Stretch outinto a long rope and cut into 1 or 2 inch pieces. Wrap in wax paper.
