"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste
2 cups brown sugar 1/2 cup cream (I use milk) 2 tbsp. butter 1/2 cup nuts
Combine sugar, cream and butter. Boil to soft ball stage (234-238 degrees). Remove from fire. Cool to room temperature. Beat until creamy; add nuts. Continue beating until mixture will hold its shape. Pour into well-buttered shallow pan. Cut into squares.
Jim's favorite. I double this and it makes a nice amount. We all like this. This recipe came from Mrs. Schindel.
