Recipe Notes

This recipe is an old family favorite. My husband did not taste it for years after we married and remarked that he could not believe he had been missing out for so long. It is at least fifty years old and I believe it to be much older. The recipe was originally given to my mother by a dear neighbor lady who never married and housed a host of felines. I still remember her gentleness with children and cats. And she made the best candy around.
