How to Make Pineapple Taffy


  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 3 drops yellow food coloring


  1. Over medium heat, combine sugar, pineapple juice, lemon juice and cream of tartar in a heavy saucepan. Cook until the mixture reaches 280 degrees F on a candy thermometer.
  2. Remove from heat. Add food coloring and blend well.
