Date Candy -- Aunt Mae 1957
1 pound cut up dates
1 pound cut up nuts
Stir quickly and roll in a towel that has been dusted with 10X (powdered) sugar (to keep it from soaking into the towel).
Cut into slices and put in canister.
Kudos to Aunt Mae, who died many, many years ago. She grew up on a farm, with few conveniences, but I think of her as a hardy, almost mountaineering woman. I am proud she was part of my heritage.
