With the kids being on spring vacation - this is a fun thing to do with them - and it will keep them busy!
2 cups sugar
2 cups honey
2/3 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil to the hard-crack stage when tested in cold water or 288 degrees using a candy thermometer. Before removing from heat, add salt. Pour onto a buttered platter until cool enough to handle. Butter hands and pull candy until white. Cut into pieces and wrap each piece with waxed paper.
