Anise Candy

2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup Light Corn Syrup
1/2 cup boiling water
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/2 tsp. food coloring (red is a festive color for these candies)
1/2 tsp. Anise oil OR 1 1/2 tsp. Anise extract

Combine sugar, corn syrup, boiling water and cream of tartar in a medium-heavy saucepan. Boil until mixture spins a thread or reaches 200 F on a candy thermometer. Add food coloring and anise oil. Pour it into a buttered 9x9x2 inch square pan.

Cut into 3/4 inch squares when partially hardened, or when hard break into two jagged pieces. May be rolled in confectioner's sugar.
