   Preparation Time: 0:30
   Combine all ingredients except vanilla in a small Dutch
   oven; cook over low heat, stirring gently, until sugar
   dissolves.  Cover and cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes
   to wash down sugar crystals from sides of pan. Uncover and
   cook over medium heat, without stirring, to soft crack
   stage (270 degrees).  Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.
   Pour candy onto a buttered 15- x 10- x 1-inch jellyroll pan
   or slab of marble. Let cool to touch; butter hands, and
   pull candy until light in color and difficult to pull.
   Divide candy in half, and pull into a rope, 1 inch in
   diameter.  Cut into 1-inch pieces; wrap each in wax paper.
   Yield:  about 40 (1-inch) pieces.
