Personal Notes:
This was a secret Grandma Kryger recipe or at least we thought it was. Then we saw that she published it in the Brinnon Cookbook. Now every one on Hood Canal has the recipe. It's all good, because everyone should get to eat this caramel. If you like caramel sauce for your ice cream then don't cook as long. Happy Sweet Sticky Tooth.
