Put all ingredients except flavoring in large heavy saucepan. Bring to boil, and cook until a small amount of mixture forms a hard ball when dropped in very cold water (254 degrees F. on a candy thermometer). Pour onto a large buttered platter. As edges cool, turn mixture toward center with a spatula. When just cool enough to handle make a hollow in center of taffy and add a few drops of flavoring. Gather up taffy and pull until light, using a little butter to grease hands while pulling. twist into a long rope and cut into pieces with scissors. Wrap each piece in wax paper and store in a cool dry place. Makes about 1¼ pounds.
