1 c Nuts, finely chopped
-(walnuts, pecans, etc.)
1 c Dates, finely chopped
2 c Sugar, granulated
1/2 c Water (up to 3/4 cup)
1 T Karo
Boil a syrup of the sugar, water and Karo; stop as or before it reaches
the soft ball stage. Let cool. Beat in the dates until they
"disintegrate," then the nuts.
Wet a dish towel in cold water. Spoon the candy along the middle of the
towel in piles. Fold towel over; roll it, pressing firmly constantly.
Leave to cool and harden. Slice approximately 1/4-inch pieces. Might
want to roll slices in coconut, chopped nuts, etc. (Mom never did, tho'.)
