How to Make Mother's Heavenly Hash


  1. Mix the first 3 ingredients, sugar, syrup and milk and cook until firm ball stage. Add the chopped pecans and chopped dates. The dates should be especially small chopped, using scissors works good.
  2. Boil an additional 3 minutes after adding nuts and dates. Beat until stiff and dull... this could take a while depending on how strong you are. Put out on board and work until firm and divide into 4 equal parts. Roll into 4 rolls (about 1" in diameter) and wrap in aluminum foil. Store in refrigerator or freezer. Cut into slices to serve. This is a delicious and unique candy.
