Nut Candy

 

3 cups sugar

cup thin cream or milk (canned milk is ok)

If milk is used add small lump (1 tablespoon) of butter

1 cup Karo syrup

1-cup nuts (black walnuts if possible)

Cook sugar, syrup and milk until candy forms a soft ball in water. When the mixture starts to thicken use a teaspoon to remove a small amount and place that into a dish of water. When you can roll it into a small ball the candy is cooked.

Remove from heat and allow it to cool. When it is partly cooled began beating the mixture with a large spoon and beat until thick, adding the nuts while you are beating. Pour into a buttered baking pan and allow to completely cool. When cool cut into squares with a buttered knife.
