This recipe has been around for decades. I don't know if it's been handed down through the years by other cooks, but mom passed it down to me.
The recipe can be tweeked to your liking. Maybe a different kind of honey, omit the sugar and/or add canned corn.
So much better than the "boxed" kind! Enjoy!
