Hard Tack Candy



1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup corn syrup
1/4 tsp. flavoring (Lorann flavor oils)
food coloring

Mix and boil sugar, water, and corn syrup to the hard tack stage (300 F). Remove from heat. Quickly add the flavoring and food coloring. Stir well.

Pour onto a buttered platter or cookie sheet. Cut into pieces immediately. Some people like to let this get hard, and then break it, but the broken pieces are very sharp, resembling broken glass.
You may dust these with powdered sugar if desired.
