Old recipe from my Mennonite Cookbook for candy. This one hails from Oregon. My Mom made this for us when we were small and I can still remember the taste of it in my head. This seems to be the same ingredients she used back in the 50's. Do you remember this old candy? Let me know if you enjoyed this as much as I did.
