"Fun In The Kitchen"



December 2003

Butterscotch Candy
Mrs. Delores Ulmer Chapman
Arcadia, California

1 cup sugar
1/3 cup molasses
1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 tablespoon boiling water

Boil ingredients together until, when tried in cold water, becomes brittle. Pour into flat well buttered pan. When slightly cool, mark with a sharp knife into squares. This candy is much improved by cooking in a small piece of vanilla bean with other ingredients.

Being our father's daughters we inherited Dad's sweet tooth and Sunday afternoon was typically a good time to make this favorite. He always had plenty of real butter in those days. My father was Nelsen Ulmer of rural Dawson, Nebraska.
