“I got this recipe from a 1980 regional cookbook put out by a nursing home that my wife's Grandma was in. I remember Grandma & the other residents putting in thier favorite recipes...Grandma was an excellant cook! This is an "Antique Recipe." Candy Pulling was a great get-to-gether in olden days! I have NOT tried this recipe. Prep, yield & cooking times are approximate!”
