Carrot Curls

This recipe may be used as a substitute for potato chips or when something crisp is desired.
Using a potato peeler, make curls out of about 3 carrots.
Deep fry in oil until they turn golden brown.
Drain in a colander or strainer. Refrigerate oil for next batch.
(Do not use oil more than 3 times as it may become rancid.)
Turn carrot curls onto a paper towel and pat dry.
Salt to taste.

Vanilla Candy/Becky's Magic Toffee (I kind of combined the two recipes)

1/2 C. Water
1 lb. honey (about 2 cups)
1 tsp. vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbl. butter
1 Tbl. baking soda

Heat honey, vinegar, and water in a large pot.
Allow to boil gently until a firm ball forms when dropped into cold water.
Remove from heat, place pot in sink, add vanilla, butter, and baking soda.
Stir briskly but only until baking soda is thoroughly blended in and toffee mixture foams up.
When the foaming begins to subside, pour into a well-buttered pan and cool.
When candy is firm enough, it may be cut into bite size pieces using kitchen shears or cracked with a blunt instrument. (I refrigerated it, then cut it with a knife when it was firm enough, then wrapped the pieces in waxed paper like carmels.)

Variation: When candy has cooled enough to handle, it can be pulled like taffy and then cut into pieces.
