Aunt Bill's Brown Candy
I can't tell you how thrilled and SURPRISED I was to see this recipe posted on your site. My mother made it every Christmas and I attempted it several times during the past 50 years, BUT, NEVER really mastered it, wanted to try it this year, but my old copy was so bad I was afraid I'd leave out a step or ingredient. Took a chance and typed it into the search here on allrecipes.com and voila! Even has the same name, which is unbelievable (it is an unusual name, right?). My adult grandson helped me with the pouring and stirring-I could not have done it without him. It turned out perfectly, just like my mother made. It's hard to describe the texture and flavor, suffice it to say, it's like nothing else, it's delicious, and worth all the work. I felt very guilty for never helping my mother, she did it all alone. I can also understand why she hoarded it until Christmas eve. When I served it at a family gathering, this year, I gave a little presentation as to how much work it was and gave my grandson, Cassidy, props for all his muscle power and encouragement. This candy is a lot like caramel, without the stickiness, fudgelike in texture, but the browned sugar flavor is prominently scrumptous. If I haven't scared you away, EVERYONE should try it! You will love it, like all my family and friends loved it! Thank you for posting it!!! I love you!!!
