  1. Combine sugar,syrup and vinegar in a large deep saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Then continue cooking WITHOUT stirring until 300^ on candy thermometer. Remove quickly and stir in soda(it will foam up high), mix well and pour right away into a buttered 9x13-inch baking pan.
