So I made my first batch of taffy and it turned out ok, but the taffy was still a little hard, however it tasted very good. Then I decide to make a different batch and it turned out rock hard. I followed the insturctions to the letter...any idea what went wrong?
Could the taffy get hard if it cools too quickly?
Possibly your thermometer isn't calibrated if it got rock hard. Even if taffy isn't pulled long enough it should stay chewy and flexible.
