Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I included this one because it seemed to be the only recipe in Mom's collection that was recorded in Dad's handwriting. He didn't spend much time in the kitchen with an apron on. I remember him helping us make this taffy on a few occasions when us boys were still at home. I don't recall ever producing a very successful batch, but we always ate the end product anyway.
