Personal Notes:
This was a recipe that was Mother's and my grandmother's as well. I think Florence made this also at Christmastime. It was kept in the refrigerator. All of us make this candy at Christmastime. Daddy particularly liked this treat. Recipe note included: if preparing for Christmas, keep in candy box. Moisten with damp cloth from time to time.
